    I need to know how I can make it so that I can turn off wireless and then when I turn it back on it asks me to enter the password. Because right now even if a disconnect airport when I turn it back on it automatically joins the network without asking for a password.

    To clarify your question.... you want to type in your wireless password each time you want to connect?

    If so, go to System Preferences, click on Network, then select AirPort on the left-hand side, then click Advanced on the bottom right. A sheet will come down with your AirPort Preferred Networks. Delete your wireless router from that list, and then uncheck the box for "Remember any network this computer has joined." That should do it.
