why is my Airport off whenever I put the laptop to sleep orreboot? - Mac Portable

Hi all - I have a 2001 G4 titanium laptop. I noticed that all of a sudden (didn't used to do this!), every time it goes to sleep or gets rebooted, the Airport is off. I have to go and manually turn it to "on" (via control strip). How can I bring it back to the original state (when it was always on)? Thanks in advance! Mike Levin...

    I have a similar but different problem with Airport. If I switch it off from
    the control strip (or sleep the computer) then switch it on again (or wake
    the computer) the Airport says it is connected but refuses to work. I have
    to restart the computer to make it work again.

    The problem only happens with 'ad-hoc' connections; not with
    'infrastructure' connections. I'm using a PB G4 12/867/256/10.2.6

    I used to have a similar problem with my iBook about six months ago.
    When the iBook was put to sleep I would have to restart the machine or
    physically turn it on. I saw this problem disappear with new releases of
    OS X. Now both iBook and two months old PowerMac can be put to sleep and
    they both automatically connect to my wireless network.

    Are you both running the latest OS X or running OS 9 or earlier?
