Hint works, but why the keychain problem?
Authored by: hintbw on Sep 22, '05 01:15:36PM

Just thought I would add that this hint worked really well for me. I help manage a group of wireless iBooks and we were having a devil of a time trying to get them to auto-connect upon boot or after having gone to sleep (they are being managed via Tiger Server). They wouldn't consistently reconnect without either logging in with the admin account or putting them on ethernet and logging in first.

This hint has now fixed the issue. Thanks a bunch! I'm still curious, however, as to why I couldn't authenticate to the keychain like others had commented. Anybody else have a idea? Wanny's comment about deleting the keychain entry, rebooting, and then reentering it into the network settings worked, but I still would like to know how I can figure out what the keychain password is, since I've tried my admin password and it wasn't it.

I had the same problem, none of my passwords would work when I tried to authenticate keychain access with either my network password or my uuser password. After I deleted the password in the system keychain i am able to auto connect with no problem.

If I go to system prefs>network>preferred networks and edit my network, if I select "show password" it shows me a new long password that I assume has been created since I deleted the old one. But even if I try to copy this password and retype it in the system keychain it doesnt work. If I change this password, I lose connectivity.
