Whenever i turn on my macbook, the airport doesn't seem to be automatically turned on. I have to click on preferences and manually turn on the airport. The thing is, I can't find any options in the preference menu to automatically turn on the airport when macbook is switched on. I'm currently on Mac OSX Leopard. Appreciate if anyone can help me on this.. Thanks!

That's weird, it's not supposed to turn off Airport when you log off or turn off the computer.

Go to your System Preferences and click on Network. Make sure Airport is selected on the left hand side and then click on Advanced. See if the box next to "Disconnect from wireless networks when logging out" is checked or not. That's the only thing I can think of that may be causing your problem.
