    so i have a hard drive connected via my airport extreme, every time i wake my computer from sleep time machine cannot connect to the drive.

    I try to mount it by going to finder > go > connect to server > airport extreme

    whe i hit connect as it takes like 5 minutes then asks for me the password, another 5 minutes and it tells me the password is incorrect.

    finally the only way to get it to work is by restarting the airport extreme....

    and my internet works so i have no problem there, just connecting to the hard drive.

    Is this a airport problem or a Leopard problem, and are there any known solutions?

    PS: this was happening on 10.5.2 and now happens on 10.5.3 as well.

    I have a separate airdisk password and when it first comes up on finder I select "Connect As" then I saved the password to my keychain.
