From my own end, the OS X 10.10.1 Yosemite update worked and I haven’t had any issues to kvetch about.
This doesn’t seem to be the same case for everyone.
Per 9to5Mac, Computerworld and complaints registered on the Apple Support Communities, yesterday’s dot-release of OS X 10.10.1 has seemingly failed to address the Wi-Fi problems some users have been experiencing since upgrading to Yosemite, according to continuing posts on the Apple Support Communities.
Despite the first bullet-point in the release notes for 10.10.1 reading ‘Improves WiFi reliability,’ many of those who had reported connection failures, dropped connections and slow speeds said that nothing had changed since upgrading to 10.10.1 …
ComputerWorld quoted a number of illustrative complaints from a support thread containing more than 1,100 posts including the following:
10.10.1 didn’t fix my Wi-Fi issues, still randomly dropping every few minutes or so [...]
We’ve got business-grade routers and [access points] at my school, and we’ve got numerous people unable to connect for longer than a minute before and after [updating] to 10.10.1 [...]
10.10.01 does NOT fix the Wi-Fi issues. I had to go thru the same extreme routines I have had to go thru the past 2 months to be able to connect to the Internet.
