On Sunday I purchased and setup a Time Capsule - 2TB. I used the same name and password I had on a Cisco Linksys that it was replacing. The setup was easy enough and it connected right away, but whenever I logout and log back into the iMac a dialog box appears stating my preferred network is not available and to choose one from the list. The list shows my network. When I open the setting dialog for the WiFi it shows Automatic and my Preferred Network. There is  message on the setup page telling me there is no IP address for my preferred network. If I run the diagnostic tool the program comes back with there is no connection problem and I am connected. How do I get it to automatically connect like it did when I had the Linksys setup?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.2)
