    How do I get my Powerbook to automatically connect to my wireless network when it is woken up from being asleep or turned on???

    I'm running 10.4.1 with 128 bit WEP encryption over the wireless network.

    I can't figure it out.....I've tried everything.


    Thanks.

    I tried disabling the WEP and it connects automatically but not when I have a password. :dunno:

    Wooohoo!!! I've fixed it....for anyone that cares.

    I'm not sure why this worked but it did. lol



    1. Delete all locations.

    2. Add your location again.

    3. Make sure it looks like this:

    Mine didn't before. Instead of "Preferred Networks" it had "A Specific Location".

    Weird but it looked different underneath that as well.

    Hope this helps anyone with the problem......
