Look for a similar facility to save your settings on the Mac. bythecshore October 23, 2010 12:25:47 AM For anyone looking, I found the correct answer on a Mac board... here it is: On your Mac, open System Preferences (gear icon) on the dock and open Network. Click on AirPort, then click Advanced at the lower right of the window. Make sure that the name of your preferred network is at the top of the connection list. If not, drag it to that position.
