We'll also guide you past the potential headaches and any problems you may encounter.
The next version of the Mac operating system is due to land any day now.
UPDATE: It appears Apple is aware of this problem and is looking into a fix. One of his diehard passions has been troubleshooting Mac problems and making the best use of Macs and Apple hardware both for family and friends, as well as in the workplace.
He and the newly formed Mac Fix It team are hoping to bring enhanced and more personable content to our readers, and keep the Mac Fix It community going here at CNET.
Overall, while this problem may require Apple to address it, these suggestions should get some people up and running since the problem does not appear to be an incompatibility with specific hardware. Send us feedback: Be sure to check us out on Twitter and the CNET Mac forums.
In the mean time, if you are not able to clear the problem, you should still be able to connect to Wi Fi networks by keeping A/C power plugged in. Topher has been an avid Mac user for the past 10-15 years, and has been a contributing author to Mac Fix It for just over a year now.
Apple says that you need at least 2GB RAM to run Mac OS High Sierra, but this is unlikely to be a problem as all the supported Macs have at least 4GB RAM, and these days most Macs have 8GB as standard, some even have 16GB.The version you will download from the Mac App Store will be an older version than the latest update.Because multiple updates to High Sierra have been issued by Apple since it launched in September 2017, you should expect to have to update the operating system again once you have installed it, but this should happen automatically.For instance, when plugged into A/C power, servers can be pinged with a consistent response time; however, when switching over to battery the response time will become very erratic.While this indicates the possibility of specific hardware incompatibility, this problem has been shared by both Mac Book and Mac Book Pro owners.
