Having problems with your IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook ?

I am having a problem getting my IBM thinkpad to recognize my wireless router. Upon startup I have to go in to make settings and get it hookup to the wireless router, but when I shut it down the settings go back and I have to redo the setting again. I should not have to do it again and again. If I startup the computer it should automatically recognize the router automatically. How can I fix this?
