I have a macbook pro 15" 2017. I use an Android hotspot to connect to internet.

Every night I put my Mac to sleep and turn off the hotspot. When I come back in the morning I turn the Android hotspot on and wake up my Mac. The wi-fi is slow and sometimes drops. Pinging google.com shows results from 30ms to 2000ms.

If I restart my Mac everything works normally – ping is around 30. What can I do so that I wouldn't have to restart my Mac every day?

( Also windows device on the same network works perfectly well )


This is technically not a fix but I think toggling wifi off and on solves the issue, without having to restart your mac. I have the same issue on my 2018 mac mini, and the only way I found to avoid this issue is to not put it to sleep.
