Greetings, Forum.
My rMBP 2.8 i7 running 10.9.4 will not update the Wi-Fi list. For instance, I open the machine, and then turn on my mobile hotspot and the hotspot SSID doesn't show until I turn off and then back on the Wi-Fi radio. The only time it seems to refresh is upon opening and no time thereafter. Peeked around generally and didn't find a solution. This condition has existed since I got the machine many moons ago though it hasn't bothered me too much. I guess now I'm feeling bothered enough to write.
Thanks for any insight.
