Re:
Mountain Lion 10.8.2
21.5" iMac
2.9 GHz Intel Core i5

i'm new to the forums and would really be grateful if someone could advise me on some console issues that i've been experiencing. i purchased the new iMac a week ago and from the outset began suffering intermittent internet drops. the wi-fi would simply switch itself off but would be instantly resolved as soon as i manually chose our network again.

it got me to searching forums. some of which suggested watching the data on the console unfold for clues. i'm still trying to resolve the issue with the internet. but what's been more alarming is the overwhelming number of console errors i've been receiving...

this is a very brief selection (but the same errors tend to re-occur)...

1/24/13 4:46:34.000 PM kernel[0]: wl0: Roamed or switched channel, reason #8, bssid 7c:bf:b1:e7:4b:80

they don't appear to be having any real effect on the system and i'm not sure if its the fear of a layman who opens up the hood and looks at a machine he doesn't understand. but while the iMac is still in warranty my question is whether these issues point to something sticky down the road or are simply standard/osx issues?

thanks very much for your time!

Hi,

I wouldn't get too hung up on them if your system is running fine.

I did spot this line however.."1/24/13 4:46:34.000 PM kernel[0]: wl0: Roamed or switched channel, reason #8, bssid 7c:bf:b1:e7:4b:80"

Hold the alt key down whilst clicking on the wi-fi icon on the menu bar and your BSSID will be listed in the greyed out specs underneath your selected network. Check that this matches with the one in the log.

Your connectivity issues can be a whole host of things but if I were you I would start with the wireless router and make sure that the firmware on it is up to date because introducing a new piece of state of the art hardware onto an older network can throw up these anomalies
