    After I restart my laptop I am not able to connect to my wifi network automatically. The AE status bars are grayed out and I have to click on them and select my network. I thought I configured everything properly. From System Preferences I went to Network (Location is set to Automatic and Show is set to Airport. I then went to By default, join and selected Preferred Networks. I then added my network to the field.

    Is there anything else that I should be doing? Thanks.

    Why are you wearing that stupid man suit?
    Hrmmm. I can't say for sure. Have you tried using the Internet Connect app and configuring everything that way?

    What brand of wireless router do you have?

    In a nice place..
    Funny that this thread should come up as I have been noticing this issue too. Not sure why it happens, but it doesn't occur 100% of the time. I always thought it was due to the numerous WIFI networks that I connect too while traveling, maybe causing my PB to get confused on which AP to use.

    Any links to this? I have a "frequent enough to be a pain in the ass" problem where I have to restart either the iMac, the router (3COM OfficeConnect ADSL Wireless G), or both to get connected again, it's been going on since 10.4.outhebox
