Hi, I just updated to OS 10.5 a few days ago, and my airport has been acting strange. Back on OS 10.4.10 I could click the Airport menu button and it would list off all the available hotspots. But now since updating, it only shows what I am connected to, which it does automatically. Sometimes I'll click it, and for a fraction of a second it will list all multiple selections. But then it disappears, showing only my connected source. How can I set it to list multiple connections?

I'm having the same problem here. I even tried a clean install.. I'm wondering if using backup to get my keychain and some settings stuff back is the problem. Any ideas on deleting the settings?

When you click, hover, and all available hotspots will show - at least they do on my Leopard

10.5.1 doesnt seem to have fixed this.... what preference piles would i have to delete to get my airport back to original settings as if it were freshly installed... I could probably archive and install but I'd rather just pick the files out in the preferences that would restoree airpot to stock specs n settingss
