I really think that should do it. If not, let us know.

Hey Ride,
Just to let feedback, what you suggested unfortunately it didn't work.

Just to clarify.
When I swtich the Mac on I don't get a connection. I have to turn the router off first, when it boots back up I get a connection straight away!

Thanks in advance.

Hmm... Not really sure here.... try to go back into the setting and RE-tick everything... As in, change Automatic to Preffered.. then Back to Automatic.

Also... Go to Sys. Prefs --> Network ---> Airport selected > click Options.
Select "Remember any network this computer has joined"

Still no joy.
I've just had a horrible ridiculeous thought. I'm not sure my router is campatable. Even though I do get a connection.

Yes and I got into the settings for the router. However I can't get the Internet connection on at the same time as I access the router, so it doesn't auotmatically recognise my ISP settings ect...

Hey guys,
I thought I'd just pop a little post on here to say that I have sorted my annoying problem.
Needless to say I WON'T be telling anyome how I fixed it, as it is rather embarassing. I maybe a noob to the Mac, but I work with windows and PC's everyday. So I should have spotted my glaring mistake earlier.

Thanks for everyones imput anyway.

Cheers

Ermm... ok then!!!
My pearls of wisdom would be, make sure you buy the correct router for you broadband connect.
Unlike me, don't buy a ADSL router when you have cable!!

Stupid or what.
