    Specs:
    27" i7 iMac, 24" iMac, 13" Macbook Air, iPhone 5 & 5S, iPod Nano 7th Gen, iPad 2 16GB WiFi, iPad 3
    What OS are you running on the iMac? What router do you have? Is the firmware up to date on the router? What changed in the past two weeks? How long have been using WiFi with this iMac?

    Does it disconnect when going to sleep?

    Now that you mention it , it does tend to do it when it goes to sleep but it reconnects very simply through the diagnostics

    I have found that if you setup your network settings for the router in the location called automatic (its a pull doen menu in the network prefs pane) then the mac auto reconnects to the network when waking from sleep
