After upgrading to Mac OSX Yosemite many users are experiencing Slow wifi issues. Many users are having issues connecting to websites specifically with resolving a domain name to an IP, while Apple seems to be bringing out a constant stream of updates for Yosemite, it hasn’t addressed this issue yet and Reddit user IAMAOG has found a way to solve the issue.
The issue seems to lie in Apple’s new Discovered process, which is responsible for name resolution
