    Wireless keep asking password??

    Hi all,

    Is this a bug?? Everytime I login into Ubuntu (Natty-beta), it keep asking me my wireless password then follow by keyring pop-up. I already tick "Connect automatically" in "Edit Connections.." menu.

    Need some help.

    To stop the keyring from asking you can go to:

    Applications -> Passwords and Encryption Keys

    Then to the "My Personal Keys" tab Then click on "Properties" and change the passphrase to be blank.

    Can you create a new Stored Password?

    under the password tab.

    right click passwords:logon and select change password.
    enter current password and under new password leave blank
    click ok
    accept the security warning saying use weak password.
    thats it.

    Unfortunately, no, that didn't solve it for me. I'm pretty sure that was already checked in the pre-existing connection from before the update, and I confirmed it is checked now. When the connection was setting up though, it did ask me for my password to make administrative changes or whatever so I think the user was approved either way.

    Nm-tool just says 'connecting (configuring)' when its doing the direct probe thing, and then once it re-asks for the password again, it says 'connecting (authenticating)'

    Thats what it did before i checked the available to all users box...but once its checked, it seems to be stuck in configuring and doing the direct probe thing over and over. After a while it just gives up now instead of re-asking for the password.

    Also, I'll just note that the wireless is still working for 3 other devices, including a maverick laptop, so the wireless itself likely isnt at issue.
