AirPlay mirroring might stop or drop connection on older 802.11 b/g networks

Symptoms

When using a MacBook Pro (Late 2013) or Mac Pro (Late 2013) with AirPlay mirroring on an 802.11b or 802.11g network, the TV image might stop or the connection may drop.

Resolution

Update or install OS X Mavericks v10.9.2 or later to take advantage of the latest software enhancements.

If your Wi-Fi base station is running in 802.11b or 802.11g mode, enable or upgrade to 802.11n or 802.11ac networking on your base station. This should increase performance and reliability of AirPlay and your wireless network in general.
