Released in October, OS X Yosemite started to create a couple of problems for Mac users. Most of them complain about various Wi-Fi problems with the new release. OS X 10.10.1 is currently under development and testing, but the Wi-Fi problem needs to be fixed before this thing happens.
While some users complain about Wi-FI problems, others suggest that their devices are working properly. As main problem, Wi-Fi bug is related to the Wi-FI connections drop or stop working. In this case, at least until Apple addresses these issues, here is a possible solution for your problem.
