I have just replaced my belkin 11.g router (model F5D7230-4), again. The router is home on a Dell PC running windows XP and connects to the internet via a cable modem from comcast. The router provides internet access to an iMac running OS X 10.0.2.
Upon replacing the router (with the exact same make and model), the iMac is no longer retaining the hex key security code. Now, everytime I try to connect to the internet, I have to enter the hex key again to get a signal. This is despite that the store in keychain box is checked, and remains consistent whether I choose a 40 bit/64 bit hex key or a 128 bit hex key.
What could possibly have changed? I didn't even have to reconfigure the software setup when replacing the router, as it is the exact same model that died previously. Any insight or suggestions would be very much appreciated.
