    The solution was to enter the Network and then in the top location window, create a new address with another name and apply. By the tests that I did the computer connects immediately to the networks.

    Great news!!!

    Let's hope that fix fixes the problem permanently.

    Good thinking on the Apple tech's part, I guess we missed that as a suggestion which is a bit odd. ie: Creating a new setting often fixes some problems.

    Patrick:

    There used to be a procedure where you could wipe out all the old network settings and start over. If I remember correctly, that worked for me when I was having difficulties similar to member carel. That particular procedure was given as a hint in the old Macworld Magazine forums that no longer exist. I should have written it down as some of the settings are hidden away and hard to find.

    I still have this available using Mavericks:
    How to Delete WiFi Network on Mac
    mac wipe out all the old network settings - Google Search

    I would think it should work well enough unless Apple removed/relocated the option in later macOS versions.
