To see what PW is actually stored, use Utilities>Keychain Access, Unlock it, highlight that account, click Show Password...
It may pay to either delete that account & redo it, or use the Keychain First Aid under the Windows menu item.
Currently Being ModeratedDec 19, 2007 1:05 AM (in response to BDAqua)Thank you for your reply, I followed your instructions and found the password for my network in keychain access>show password as you suggested, it shows my password is the very same password that I have been trying to use.
I deleted the old airport account and used the assistant to set up a new account, it asks me to select the network I wish to join and then asks me to put in my selected network password. I put in my password exactly as written in the keychain access and it says "sorry the password you entered is invalid"
I have deleted the password in keychain access and retyped it and pressed save, tried the new account process again and it still says 'invalid password'
Any idea what's going on?Apple iMAC, Mac OS X (10.4.10)

Currently Being ModeratedJan 10, 2008 9:39 PM (in response to looebay)Hi I've also been annoyed by this message and need help to fix it.
I'm running an iMac Intel with 10.5. But the problem has been persisting since 10.4 although I'm happily connected to the web through airport and base station.
Can you please offer a suggestion?iMac Intel, Mac OS X (10.5.1)
