Since the original has been locked,
Heres what has happened since I last posted

Took the one away that was always asking for the wireless password.

Re-cloned it from one of the 'good' machines from the other class. Same problem.

Reset pram, disk permission, keychain, everything the internet could suggest. Nothing worked

Upgraded to snow leopard, updated to lastest version of that. Still nothing

Once I had those in it started showing a new Airport update. THIS WORKED!

It stopped asking for the password!

So got it all up to date, cloned it, and then  put this new updated image on the other chronic machine that would not connect AT ALL. and that worked too!

So im now slowly passing this image around all of the other macs which just drop out often.

Teacher feedback is that the two re-cloned machines are both doing well :D

Hmm so for some reason the airport update wasn't showing in software update until you reinstalled snow leopard?! Very annoying! Luckily you can download updates individually from Apple but you still need to know to look for it first. Glad you got it sorted.
