I have problems with the keyring manager which prevents me to get connected with my wireless router.

I manually connect with the WAP and it asks my password. I provide my pass and the keyring manager pops up and asks pass to unlock keyring for the netwrok manager. After taking all the passwrds it tries to connect with the wireless router and fails. In the failed dialoge box I can see my password for the wireless router has been changed. Its no longer a clean text (9 character) password. it was converted to HEX.

How do I stop the keyring to encrypt( if it does)/convert my pass?

I have a netgear wireless -N gigabit (3500) router.

I have spended long time finding solutions on the Internet and tried couple of them. But no luck. I hope you people can help me out.

thanks in advance.
