Hi and Welcome to Discussions,
does removing the network from the list of known networks not work? After doing this, it should act like a completly new network. Additionaly I'd delete the saved password(s) from the keychain, just to be sure the problem isn't coming from there.
To do so
1) Open Sys Prefs/Network/AirPort/More Options and remove the network from the list.
2) Open /Applications/Utilities/Keychain Access.app and delete the entry with your AirPort network's password
3) Select the network, enter the password and click to save the password.
That should do it!
Hmm, I once had this problem when the network was added the way you used. Try removing it once again and adding it NOT via the popup list that you mentioned, but manually via
Sys Prefs/Network/AirPort/More Options/
There add it with the little + icon and select the option to remember all networks the computer was connected to.
Hope this helps!
Finally I have found the solutution myself by searching the Google again and again.
It seems to be a very strange bug in OS X. When I moved System Prefences.app out of my Applications folder to another location automatic connection to any preferred networks do not work.
The solution I found (and it worked for me):
- turn AirPort off
- delete every preferred networks
- delete all AirPort Keychains
- move System Prefences.app back to Applications
- reboot macbook
- connect to a preferred network from the scratch
Maybe it will be useful for any other who will face this problem.
