    I have a dlink 802.11b router for my wireless network. On my emac, I have an AE card and everything works great but one thing. Everytime I restart my computer i have to click on the airport icon and select my network... Is there anyway to automatically pick a network to start everytime your computer turns on? thanks, jordon

    1. Open Network preferences, and then choose the location you want to set up, or choose New Location from the Location pop-up menu.

    2. Choose AirPort from the Show pop-up menu, and click AirPort.

    3. Choose "A specific network" from the "By default, join" pop-up menu, and enter a name and password for the AirPort network you prefer.

    By default, Automatic is selected in the "By default, join" pop-up menu. With Automatic selected, your computer will find the nearest network and try to connect to it.
