New MacBook Air plagued by Wi-Fi problems

32

Owners of the new MacBook Air lineup have been reporting problems with their Wi-Fi connectivity. After half an hour of browsing the connection drops and is unable to resume until a reboot, and for some users it takes only a minute or two of activity, or attempting to download more substantial data for the connection to call it quits.

According to Gizmodo, the problem might be in the plastic hinge where the wireless antennae are housed. Being tightly packed in there, the lack of space could be choking the signal. The problem gets even worse when the Air is put on a desk or other surface.

Apple haven’t commented on the situation yet.
