    Has anyone else had no wifi when switching from work to home wifi networks until you do a full restart in Sierra? My 2015 Macbook pro 13 has had to be restarted every single time I switch wifi networks, even shutting off wifi is not enouth, but when I restart, then it works.

    Just me or anyone else?

    Thanks,

    Hi, I read your problem and I don't know what's exactly wrong with it. But what you can possibly do is uninstall the driver for the Macbook, restart it, then try to reinstall the driver again.
    You can try to uninstall the Wifi driver.
    Also try to keep your updates up to date, even though some updates might suck. like iOS10 (Lol)
    Keeping it up to date will make your Macbook less vulnerable to threats and possibly force booting.

    1. Turn Off Wi-Fi from the Wireless menu item
    2. From the OS X Finder, hit Command+Shift+G and enter the following path: /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/

    No wifi until restart-trash-network-configuration-settings-os-x-yosemite-wifi.jpg

    3. Within this folder locate and select the following files:

    com.apple.airport.preferences.plist
    
com.apple.network.identification.plist
    com.apple.wifi.message-tracer.plist

    NetworkInterfaces.plist

    preferences.plist

    4. Move all of these files into a folder on your Desktop called ‘wifi backups’ or something similar – we’re backing these up just in case you break something but if you regularly backup your Mac you can just delete the files instead since you could restore from Time Machine if need be

    5. Reboot the Mac

    6. Turn ON WI-Fi from the wireless network menu again

    If this doesnt work try to reset the SMC

    1. Turn of your mac

    2. Hit Shift+Control+Option the same time.

    3. Release the keys and start up your mac normally.
