Specs: Windows XP Pro sp2 and 3, 512+
this happens on sp2 machines sometimes as well. i save one or a couple of network passwords in the "manage my network passwords" section of the user account. after a reboot, on some machines it remembers and some it does not remember. for the life of me i can't figure out why. i assume it's a certain windows update that screws this up, but i really don't know. is there any way to get this working again? anyone else ever had this problem?

i should also clarify that at first it always remembers, but suddenly one day out of the blue, on of the PCs will forget the network password.

Is this setup as a workgroup network? If so, I have found that 'remembering' network passwords is never a sure-fire thing with XP or really any Microsoft Operating System.

so another consistently inconsistent problem that's my fault since i'm not using a domain. throwing a net use script in the start-up doesn't even seem to work every time either. so, it needs to be manually ran sometimes.
