I have found something interesting in the Logs of my router.
When I turn on my computer (PC) the router creates a lease for it, adresses it to the pc and keeps it until I shut that thing off. Now what does the glorious Mac fraction do? Every single Device creates a new lease every 2-5 fucking minutes without any reason. Having around 10 Apple devices and a lot of other WiFi devices (speakers, laptops, etc) my router runs out of leases and deletes cannot adress new ones.
Solution: I configured the router to delete signed out leases after 10 minutes, it was an hour before. Maybe I can tell the Apple shizzle to not request one all the time?

I'm not network-savvy, but my Macbook does not work on my 5GHz connection from my router so I have to run it on the 2G connection. All my other devices, including a few old Hackintoshes, run the 5G fine.
My MBP is mid-2014 running 10.9.5
Same with my 3rd generation iPad. All good on my iPhone 5 and on my "vintage" 2002 Powerbook.
Try turning IPV6 off on them, if you don't use it? Also check what IP they default to when they fall over — it's usually some arbitrary thing that matches AirPort kit.
And yes, Apple machines are less than perfect when running on anything other than their own kit.
My new Macbook WiFI that I bought last year has given me a lot of problems. My friend had the same issue.
