Has anyone noticed issues logging on to Airport since the last update. Since this last update that was pushed a week or two ago, I have been having issues logging back to the net wirelessly when my computer shuts down and restarts or when it wakes up from sleep. Additionally, even though I have told the system to remember the network, password, etc, that I want to connect to wirelessly, the system doesn't save the network name and password. This is a huge nuisance when you set your wireless network to not broadcast it's name in the open for security reasons. Another nuisance is that when I'm forced to enter a network manually, I have to repeatedly try to connect because the system keeps timing out.
I tried to go to Apple's support site and report these issues, but man!!!!... they make it EXTREMELY difficult for a user to contact them online unless you have an .MAC account on that site. The information is great, but trying to contact them directly online is like pulling teeth!

I have had connectivity issues too - but I thought it had more to do with my new time capsule. Every time I finally get it to work it stops working when I shut down the computer and I have to find a way to get it going again when I start up again. Right now the light glows green but nothing is happening. I have rebooted and rebooted and no change.
However, I have been able to connect to a neighbor's wireless network - so I am assuming it isn't airport.
