The only unfinished thing in OS X : Network setup

As a longtime Windows user, I was really impressed by a lot of OS X. Not only the look, which is not my primary concern, but the intelligence of most things. OS X reminds me of the opposite of the feeling you get when using some products. Reactions like "Jeeze, didn't anyone ever try this to see how bad it sucks?" when trying to configure certain phones or other devices. So Apple hardware and OS X both are pretty cool.

OTH, the networking looks like it was slapped on at the last minute and I still can't figure out how to manage the preferred networks list. I have one network it keeps wanting me to connect to and my real preferred one doesn't connect automatically.

I've already googled, and like so many of the problems I've had on the MacBook, there are a few people posing the same problem and no valid answers so far.

The MacBook used to drop out of the router from time to time but the very recent update fixed that. The MB doesn't handle WPA too well, apparently or maybe only when the SSID is NOT broadcast.

Anyway, recent links to details on managing the network, especially preferred networks and how to get rid of the cache, would be appreciated.

This site rocks, Merlin, but what else could we expect from you?

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »
