I have two macbook pros connected to a wireless router. One was too far and lost signal, and when I brought it back in range, I am getting connection time out and ocassionally "wrong password". I opened Keychain on both the working computer and the one that was out of range, the stored password is the same. I have tried manually entering it several times now, checking for accuracy.

I still cannot connect. What's wrong with my airport?

I've been experiencing the same issues with my Macbook Pro - it all happened when I got out of range and then back in. It kept asking for the password although it was stored in the Keychain. I was finally able to fix it by going through the Assist me... menu in the network preferences. Don't ask me why, it seemed to reset something. – slhck Apr 24 '11 at 20:23
But for what it's worth: Could you post the output from when you try to connect? – slhck Apr 24 '11 at 20:29
