    Brand new C2D-based iMac running Leopard. When my computer is awakened from sleep mode, it cannot find my router, and I have to manually connect every time. I am connecting via wireless to a D-Link DGL-4500 with the SSID hidden. I am on the 802.11a/n band.

    I went into the network connections setup on this Mac (Advanced|Airport), and my router does show up, but I have to manually connect it every time. I've tried removing the entry and readding it, but it doesn't help.

    Any thoughts?

    How long do you usually give it before you manually connect? I know I have a lag on both my iMac and MacBook Pro where the wireless connection is not established for a good 30-60 seconds until after they have been woken from sleep.

    try going to Advanced Network preferences and removing your preferred networks, deleting Airport network password from Keychain Access, rebooting and then re-connecting again.
