I am having to rejoin my home network every time I start up my MacBook Pro or my iMac. I just had to replace my router (Belkin "Pre-N") after 10yrs of hard service. I got my self an Airport Extreme. The other macs (iMac and iPad both the wife's) are having no issues was so ever, all are using wireless connections. I just did the software update to the airport utility and lion. The issue pre-dates the updates. Anyone got any Ideas on a fix. I set up all machines the same.
Thanks for the help.

If It Was Easy, Everyone Would Be Doing It.

Did you remove the old router from your network preferences?
Go to System Preferences>Network>Advanced (button on bottom right)>Wi-Fi tab. Select the old router in that list and click the "-" sign to remove it.

You may also want to configure the Location settings while you're in the Network settings. I have mine set to Automatic and it always connects to my home network no problem.

Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.
