    For some reason, every time I turn on airport it asks me for a password. The password set up for osx. It says "this osx requires a password" and on details it says airport. Is there a way to get rid of this? It didn't do this before.

    open keychain and delete the entry then log onto your WAP again.

    It would help if you tell us what hardware you are using. It sounds like an unusual problem; I've been using AirPort for years and I have never seen that before.

    The poster above does have a point: give it a go.

    I have a 12 inch 1.33 powerbook G4 running Tiger.
    I tried the deleting from keychain but as soon as I logged in airport again, it asked for the password again. It's not a airport password either, its OSX password. And it's extremely annoying when I wake my PB up and it asks for the password everytime. =( This suddenly happened about a week ago. Never did it do that before. :(

    hmm...

    not sure ont he airport question, but your wake up from sleep question is easy. click on security in system preferences then uncheck "require password to wake this computer..."

    It doesn't ask for a computer for waking up, the OSX asks for a password to join in on the airport connection. I know, its weird.

    I have the exact same problem (and posted about it last week, but not much help). I repaired permissions and repaired the keychain, but nothing has helped so far. I'm going to try apple discussion forums or call them if I have time. I'll let this thread know if I find a solution.

    Deleting the entry in the Keychain utility worked for me. It no longer asks for my OS X password.

    The following suggestion in this thread worked for me:
    Maybe it'll work for you, too?
