    I've recently upgraded from Tiger to Leopard on my Power Mac G4. Now, each time I turn the computer on, I don't automatically connect to the internet. I have an Airport Extreme-compatible Wireless PCI card.

    I can get the internet to work if I manually go through the Network Diagnostics stages and turn Airport on that way. However, each time I turn the computer off and on again there is no internet connection again, which can get quite frustrating after a while.

    Any advice would be much appreciated. Is there an option somewhere to keep Airport on permanently? Would it make any difference if I removed and re-inserted the PCI card?

    I know it isn't to much of a problem, but you could - if you use it as the main thing on your Mac, do an Archive and Install and when it comes to wireless setup on Leopard, make it as the main setup. It should work. :)
