    When I wake up my PowerBook, Leopard will randomly forget my network and I"ll have to select my home network and re-enter my password. How do I fix this?

    What type of security do you have on your network as many have found this problem with WEP passwords (myself included). The solution for me was to change the security type.

    Its WEP. So I have to switch to WPA? That's pretty crappy.

    Your mileage may vary so it might not work but all reports I have read have been down to WEP.

    I switched my network over to MAC address filtering.

    BTW WPA is much more secure so it is not without its drawbacks but it is pretty crappy.
