I have a Mid 2011 Mac Mini which is connected to:
- Airport Express
- Apple Bluetooth trackpad
- Apple Bluetooth keyboard
Suspiciously frequently and quite consistently, maybe every other day, one of the three disconnects, and I have to reconnect them manually, which usually goes fine immediately.
For comparison, my MacBook Air never disconnects from the network. Battery health on the trackpad and keyboard does not seem related to the disconnects.
Since all three of the devices disconnect, the culprit would seem to be the Mini, particularly the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth adapter. But I don't want to jump to conclusions.
- How can I best diagnose the situation to understand what is wrong?
- Is it likely that replacing the Wi-Fi/Bluetooth adapter would resolve the problem?
