Hi,

I have ubuntu 10.10. I am facing an issue with ubuntu system wireless manager.
The problem is that when it loses the connection and gets it again (e.g. when power goes and comes back again), it keeps waiting for me to accept the WPA password.
Is there anyway to make it automatic, so i don't have to do it manually?

Thanks in advance,
RTG

Is the password field blank or it is already typed in?

It is already typed in.

Is the "connect automatically" option enabled in the connection properties?

Yes, whenever I log in to my system it automatically connects to wifi, that's not the problem.
But when due to power of my home goes and come back, and my wifi modem restrarts, I have to click on connect, it did not connect automatically once the connection becomes available again.

Well, you may try my solution for autoconnecting from here http://art.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=800330
It is written for a VPN auto-reconnect but works fine for WLAN too.
