    ¡Hola!

    Try this :

    - turn the Macbook OFF
    - reset the NVRAM
    - go to System preferences / Startup Disk, select you main partition as startup disk (this was reseted by the nvram reset)
    - turn the Macbook's wifi OFF
    - go to System Preferences / Network / Wifi / Advanced, delete the two networks from the network list
    - go to Applications / Utilities / Keychains, type in "airport" in the search field, make sure that no entry exists for the two deleted networks. If you find some, delete them
    - turn the wifi ON, select the first network, enter its password
    - now select network two, enter its password

    It may not be quite that complicated. It sounds like a saved password issue.

    Go into System Preferences > Network > Advanced... Is Remember networks this computer has joined selected? If not, it should be.
