    Specs:
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '11 1.8 i7 4GB 10.10; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.10; 5s & 5c
    I have found the issue of not remembering a password typically has to do with the Keychain.

    What I do, is delete that network in the Advanced pane of Network System Preferences. Also put a check in 'Remember networks...." if it is not checked. Then open up Keychain Access and delete it from there - highlight Logins on the left side - also look to see if there is more than one listed here. Then do a fresh setup of this network. This has worked repeatedly for me.

    Here is a workaround if Keychain is still not remembering it correctly. - link

    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
