Why doesn't Vista save network settings?

I have a wireless modem/router.  My Vista laptop sees it and adds that network.  I save it from there.  However, I'll reboot and notice there isn't a connection.  I have to find the wireless network and add it again.  Periodically it is lost anyways.  I always save the network but it seems to forget for some reason.  Any ideas why it keeps forgetting the network?

Do you have it set to automaticaly log onto that connection?You have to open the properties of the wireless connection there should be a area where you put a checkmark in to automaticaly connect to this connection.

Not sure what the advantage is of that link.  I do have my router set to not broadcast the SSID.  My network shows up as "unnamed network" when looking for it at the laptop.

The router is a Motorola SBG900.
