10.5: Work around a potential AirPort connection glitch
Authored by: Sven G on Dec 17, '07 11:13:01AM

A very annoying Leopard AirPort-related bug is, among others, that when you click on your AirPort base station icon in the Finder sidebar, often it only mounts the shared part of AirPort disk (and then only with a generic network drive icon), while the account-protected part doesn't mount (but the Finder seems to look for it forever). Force-quitting the Finder, unmounting the first disk and re-clicking on the two AirPort volumes usually fixes this problem: the volumes now both mount with their proper AirPort icon.

If one tries to automount the AirDisk at login by adding its volumes to the Login Items in Accounts (System Preferences), it usually automounts OK, but with the generic green network drive icons instead of the blue AirPort icons: another very strange bug!

Really, lots of bugs in this front...

Ooops: the generic network drive icons are grey, of course (it's the Time Machine drive icon which is green).
