    Looks like MacOS 10.9.2 became available today from the App Store.  It will be interesting to see if the wifi roaming and dropping issues have been resolved.

Doesn't look promising:

   I'm hoping they may have addressed it under the cloak of "improvements to the stability, compatibility and security of your mac.."  without even mentioning it officially.

It is supposed to at least fix bug number one here.

In our limited testing it does not seem to address issue number one.  On the upside it does not reverse the work done using the supplied work around.

Test on a mid-2013 MBA after upgrading to 10.9.2 showed that the MBA wireless driver was upgraded from 6.30.223.154.45 to 6.30.223.154.63.

 

However, the issue with ARP failure and connection loss after a max of 20 minutes on an 802.11ac connection (CSCuj17283) was verified as still present when running Cisco WLC 7.6.100.0 code on a WiSM2/6500 combo (Sup2T running 15.1(2)SY1).

 

The issue has been tested in 7.6.101.7, and appears to be resolved.

Good news,

 

Next stop 7.6MR1.

 

Thanks for the heads up.

 

Cheers

Anders

Anyone having IPv6 working on Mavericks with 7.6.101.7 on the WLC? IPv4 appears to work now, but we are still having problems with IPv6 on both OS X 10.9.1 and 10.9.2 when they connect to wlc 7.6. Works fine on wlc 7.4.

No issues here with 7.6.100.0 on WiSM2s and SLAAC.

Was it working with 7.6.100.0 for you and broke when you went 7.6.100.7? Are you using SLAAC or DHCPv6?

We use SLAAC. We had issues with 7.6.100.0 too, that is why we tried the upgrade. We only see this problem with OSX 10.9.x and only on wlc 7.6.*. IPv6 on Linux, Windows and Android works fine on wlc 7.6 as far as we can tell. On wlc 7.6, for some strange reason, the Mac chooses its link local address as source address when connecting to GUA addresses. This behaviour only happens on the wlc 7.6.*. ping to the default gateway's link local address works. ifconfig, routing table and neighbor cache looks correct. It updates the lifetime counters on GUAs when new RAs arrive. Move the AP to a 7.4 controller, and the Mac starts using its GUA as source address and it works.

We got it to work now. We had to set "Unknown Address Multicast NS Forwarding" to disabled. When this setting is enabled on AireOS 7.6, IPv6 on OSX does not work, at least not in our environment. Something appears to go wrong with DAD on Apple's operating systems when it is enabled. We noticed that Global addresses where marked as duplicate in ifconfig. And sometimes we would not get global addresses at all. In these situations the interface came up with "nd6 options=9". Harald On 02/28/2014 02:06 PM, Harald Terkelsen wrote: > We use SLAAC.
