I am using OS 10.3.9 on a G3 IMac with an Airport card. Every time a boot the computer I'm forced to choose a wireless network, even though I have one selected in System Preferences. Is it possible to have my Mac automatically connect at startup? Any help would be much apreciated.

System Prefs > Network > (Airport tab) "By default join" select "preferred networks"

Works for me.

Thanks for the help, but I tried this and I'm still forced to choose a network after the computer boots, even if it's set to join a specific network by default.
