    Hi I wonder if anyone can help me.
    whenever my mac book pro is woken up from sleep I get this message "None of your preferred networks are available".

    I can see the router name "NETGEAR" on the list with a locked icon next to it and when I click on that it asks for a password (even though I have saved this information previously). So I enter the password and click join and it tries to connect but then says "connection timeout".

    The only way around this is to turn the router off and on again and it connects -but as you can imagine this is a bit of a pain.

    any help gratefully received.

    I don't know MAC, but when similar happens with Windows I advise to make sure of the latest correct wireless driver; make sure of having the latest router firmware; reset the router to factory default settings and reconfigure it.

    If that doesn't help the only solution is a different adapter and/or router. My workaround is to disconnect (or switch the integrated adapter off) before Standby/Sleep/Hibernation and then reconnect after the computer awakens.
