    When you click on the airport icon and then hit network preferences, have you set the lock icon at the bottom left? Make it unlocked and see if that solves your problem.

    OSX will ask you for your password from time to time when you are deleting/moving certain things or changing certain settings, it's just an aspect of and operating system where you are not the "root" user. It's for security generally.

    Click the ? icon in the lower left corner of the window where it's asking for your password. That will give you an explanation.

    You didn't read it all:
    It's a security feature. You can't stop the system for asking for your admin password for certain activities.
    Why are you turning WiFi on and off? If you turn it on, it stays on, even if you reboot, and you don't have to enter a password to access WiFi every time you reboot.
