I run the iMac off the wi-fi, but since the router is right there it could just as easily be an ethernet connection (which is what it is presently). I use the wi-fi for my iPad (and iPhone when I'm home) and occasionally when someone visits like my brother or sisters which isn't too often.

But if this is a Mavericks issue then the question is will a newer router, even an Airport, make a difference and get around the issue? The other thing that gets me is that I can't get any dialog window off my Setup CD even after deleting the network and resetting the router and starting all from scratch as if new.

Re: OSX Mavericks...

My mid-2007 iMac, much like Geordi, has just rolled under the closing door - so I've had a bit of an upgrade blowout these past 24 hours. Mavericks, apparently free upgrades to the full versions of Pages, Keynote, a bit of app updating, and iOS tidying up on both my iPod and my iPad.

I'm noticing my computer just getting a bit creaky, so I'll think about updating at some point - but the reality is I could probably get out another year simply by doubling RAM - which would be a temporising option.

Re: OSX Mavericks...

I have never had any network issues with Mavericks. That upgrade went absolutely seamless for me (as did the switch from my old AirPort Express to the new Extreme - the AirPort Utility made it totally smooth).

@Warped: Just in case something like this happens again, you may need the Ethernet as a backup, in which case it would be better to go with the Extreme. FWIW.

@Warped9: I would be remiss if I didn't put in my usual recommendation for Apple gear. In this case, the AirPort Extreme router (the one that looks like a white skyscraper ). I found the setup to be absolutely seamless and it works great.

Plus it supports dual 5 Ghz and 2.4 Ghz networks simultaneously. Your gear will connect to whichever one it can support, automatically.
This is one of the reasons I have stuck with Apple since I started owning a computer: little to no fuss in setup and use. I've pretty much decided to go with an Airport.

Otherwise everything else seems to be working fine with Mavericks. Safari actually seems to work better with it as well. I had some concern about SketchUp's compatibility initially but it works just fine. The only thing I had to fix (sort of) was my copy of Little Snitch which allows me to use my CS4 Photoshop and Illustrator. I had to upgrade to LS 3.3 and renew my licence. Thankfully I became aware of it before trying out Photoshop and Illustrator or it could have been a big headache.

Yep, Safari is definitely working better with Mavericks than it did with Mountain Lion.

Re: OSX Mavericks...

I vastly prefer Firefox over Safari, not the least of reasons why is that Firefox will let you set cookies selectively (i.e. lets you block all cookies except from the sites you specify).

I think I was the only one in the cinema laughing during THE MATRIX when the Oracle offered Neo a cookie.

Instead of typing special combinations for accents and some symbols, now you only have to press the keys a little longer and like on the iPhones and iPads, those symboles appear above the letter just typed.
I was doing that with ML just a couple of weeks ago so I don't think its new.


Overall Mavericks seems to be good, no major issues and I think I'm going to like tabs in Finder.

I never upgraded to Mountain Lion when it came out, so Mavericks is my first update in a long time. I actually preferred the way Safari used to work. Something about it now is just off.

Re: OSX Mavericks...

Took like an hour and the only differences I noticed are iPhoto is now blue, not yellow and Finder Taps / Tags which is neat.

However Safari keeps locking up on me.

I'm actually tempted to go with that. Is the Airport Extreme necessary or would Airport Express serve? The Extreme is twice the price of the Express I believe.
Well it took awhile, but yesterday I finally got around to getting an Airport Express and my wi-fi now works perfectly. And it was the easiest think to setup since it pretty much sets up itself.
