    Hi

    I don't know what's happened, but everytime I try to connect to the net I have to remember to type in my password since it keeps 'forgetting' it. Sometimes it will remember it when it tries to automatically reconnect, but not always, and never the first time the system starts up. I do have the "remember password" box checked so I don't know why. Is this a bug I should be aware of?

    Not sure what u mean.

    I get the box with the password field saying something like

    "[Click here to change the saved password.]"

    and the drop-down phone number list.

    I check the Save Password box and I've tried both the Me Only and All Users of this Computer options but it still won't work.

    Any other ideas to try? :confused:
