I have recently been having to log into to my home wifi router every time I switch on. I have tried making it my preferred network in Airport, i.e. top of the list, but it just ignores me. Anything be done about this?

    Make a New Location, Using network locations in Mac OS X ...




    10.5, 10.6, 10.7 & 10.8…


    System Preferences>Network, top of window>Locations>Edit Locations, little plus icon, give it a name.



    10.5.x/10.6.x/10.7.x/10.8.x instructions...


    System Preferences>Network, click on the little gear at the bottom next to the + & - icons, (unlock lock first if locked), choose Set Service Order.


    The interface that connects to the Internet should be dragged to the top of the list.


    If using Wifi/Airport...


    Instead of joining your Network from the list, click the WiFi icon at the top, and click join other network. Fill in everything as needed.
