Does anyone find that OSX forgets their home wireless password?

    I have done a search but didn't find quite what I was looking for.

    I'm using a 2012 macbook air with OS Lion. Quite frequently when my macbook wakes from sleep it does not connect automatically to my wireless network and when I manually choose the network it then asks for a password. I enter the correct password and have to press 'submit' maybe 10 or so times (as it always initially thinks the password is wrong) before it lets me in...

    I'm not quite sure what is wrong? When I sign in to the network the 'remember this network' box is ticked and the password is appearing correctly in keychain access. Can anyone help?

    Hasn't happened to me on my 2011 MBA at home or at work on the network

    Do you have the latest version and all updates?
    You might try a fresh install

    Try this.

    System Preferences>Network>Wifi. Drag your home network's name to the top of the list.

    I do, there are no updates available that I don't have apparently. Maybe it'll sort itself out with mountain lion.
