iBook G4 and AEBS N not finding network after sleep

I have an iBook G4 and an Airport Extreme N. When I turn on the notebook, or after waking the notebook from sleep, the iBook can't find my home network. It asks if I want to join my neighbors network. I say no, and then use the drop-down in the title bar to choose my network. The drop-down sees the network, but it won't automatically connect.

Does anyone have any ideas how to correct this minor annoyance?

Thanks!

System Preferences > Network

Select Airport, then in the tab it has something that says "By default, join..." choose "Preferred networks" from the dropdown list and delete all networks except yours.

Thanks for the quick response. Unfortunately, my network is already set up like that.

any other ideas?

Thanks.

are you sure? try removing all networks and then readding only yours or something...
