My mac is Macbook Pro (mid2014), OSX 10.11.3 (15D21). It disconnects literally every one minutes when I am watching stream on douyutv.com (Chinese version of Twitch). My other devices(smartphone, pad, pc) works all right. I did an experience that watch stream on all my devices, only mac disconnected.

Is it a bug or just something wrong with my configuration?

  • I tried to watch twitch just now, wifi disconnected as well. Feb 26, 2016 at 6:49
  • Could you check your logs? Ie start the "Console.app", search for "arpt" (airport) and see if you see something.

  • Thanks for your reply! I just tried all solutions on that webpage. Don't work. This issue only happens when I watching stream. Surfing web, playing online games are not affected. Feb 28, 2016 at 3:29
