One of the problems common with Apple devices is related to WiFi connectivity . Both Mac and iOS devices (iPad and iPhone) suffer from this problem, although in general the solution is usually simple.
If you have a Mac with OS X Mavericks (10.9) and WiFi connectivity is much slower than it should (quite common unfortunately), then you’ll find a simple form with which, on many occasions, solves the problem.
Of course the first thing to do is rule out that the problem is not in our WiFi hotspot or Internet connection .This is simple, if other devices get better speeds (both outbound Internet as communication with other devices connected to the same WiFi access point), we can rule out that the problem is in the network.

Once ruled that the problem is not in the network, we can proceed to try to solve the problem by doing something very simple: eliminating the WiFi network settings and turning it fails to configure . It may seem silly, but occasionally this simple operation solves problems.
The steps are:
. 1 – We access the Apple () menu – System Preferences – Network .
2 – We click on the button Advanced .
3 -. Turned off the WiFi Mac
4 – In the list of Preferred Networks locate it works slower than it should. Select it and remove it click the button – that appears after the list of networks.
5 – We click on the button + and configure the network again.
6 – Go back to activate the WiFi connection Mac computer If we configured the network correctly will automatically connect..
After following these simple steps WiFi connectivity should return to work at optimum speed and reach similar to those of other devices connected to the network speeds.
If this has not solved the problem, and other network devices to work properly, it is possible that the problem is elsewhere and that, perhaps, is not a simple configuration issue , but something more serious such as a failure hardware. Problems Slow WiFi on Mac with Mavericks
