    :confused: I installed Leopard on Thursday, everything worked fine up to this morning when I rebooted the computer it wouldn't let me join my network without entering the passkey. I turn on the PC, connect and get the key from the router, enter into the iBook and select the remember checkbox. I crawl Craigslist for 30minutes close the lid to put it to sleep, come back and I have to manually join the network because its forgotten the passkey again. Anyone else experiencing this or have a solution? I tried everything I found on google but nothing lasts after a restart :dunno:.

    Try deleting your passkey from the keychain.

    been there.. :hs:

    From what I'm seeing after playing around some more it's saving the password incorrectly under Network Preferences. And the key is only showing up under the login in keychain access, where-as previously successful networks with passkeys are saved in both the login and system menus :confused:.

    Anyway, tried deleting the key and entering it manually in both menus but again, didn't stick after reboot and had to enter again to get back online :sadwavey:.

    Did you run all the OSX updates? I've seen that happen with, IIRC 10.5.2.

    Keychain is borked. Search around, there's some commands you can run in the terminal to fix it.

    I had that problem before. What worked for me, was copying the key from the login keychain into the system keychain.
