My wireless is WPA secured. Hardy defaulted to roaming mode/DHCP and there was absolutely no problem connecting to my access point. One thing I immediately noticed was that the network manager did not prompt for keyring password except for the time I initially set it up. It automatically connected to wireless on subsequent reboots. Pretty neat.
I do torrents so I needed a static IP for portforwarding and stuff. I switched to static IP from System -> Admin -> Network. I unchecked roaming mode on my wireless device and specified IP address, subnet mask and gateway. Everything was fine and I was able to connect online. Rebooted and network manager auto connected without prompting for keyring password. I was online.
Today, I figured out how to reserve a fixed IP to my PC (based on MAC address) in my router's admin console. In Hardy, I switched back to roaming mode/DHCP from System -> Admin -> Network. I prefer to be in roaming as this is my laptop. My wireless works fine and DHCP gets me the IP I want, ports are getting forwarded.
But just one problem, everytime I reboot, network manager is now prompting for keyring password like it used to do in Gutsy. How do I fix this? Is this a bug?
