WiFi not being remembered

Using Keychain First Aid

  1. Hit Command+Spacebar to bring up Spotlight, launch “Keychain Access”
  2. Pull down the “Keychain Access” menu and select “Keychain First Aid”
  3. Enter the password accompanying the given user name
  4. Check “Repair” and click on “Start”

If this doesn’t work then we can try removing the wireless networks from Keychain.
