    Default Rain router and MacBook Air WiFi refuses to connect

    Have b618 lte router. Bought both router and MacBook Air brand new Jan 2018
    The Problem
    - WiFi connectivity to MacBook Air keeps on dropping . Keeps on looking for ip address. Can never enter the IP address.
    - using 5mhz and 2,4mhz

    So frustratingly annoying.
    ISP blames hardware
    Hardware company blames isp

    Uggggghhhh
    What to do?

    Any ideas to fix this stupid problem?

    Have you tried connecting your Macbook Air to the B618 LTE router directly with a LAN cable to see if the direct connection also has issues, or if it is only occurring with the Wi-Fi signal?

    Macbook Air doesn't have a LAN port...

    I had a similar problem few years back. Try to set up MAC address filtering, as apposed to joining with a password. Alternatively, also try to adjust the channel of the router.

    Check the channel you are on. I think by default the b618 2.4ghz uses 5(7) and on 5gh 36(42). Your channels might overlap with your neighbours and cause issues.
