    Exclamation netrwork manager erasing wep keys

    I am running Karmic on a Lenovo s10e.

    I have been trying to reconnect to some wep encrypted ap's. There have been recent changes to the routers. In some cases my mac is barred, also some have changed their mac as well. Typical behavior of network manager on failed connection is to ERASE THE WEP KEY.

    I call this worse than a bug, I really get tired of typing in the same key over and over! I think there is a basic misunderstanding about what the software is supposed to do. Even if there an error in the key, having the old one there to edit would be a huge help. IN MY PROFESSIONAL OPINION, NETWORK MANAGER SHOULD NEVER, EVER ERASE THE WEP KEY. Typing in 26 hex digits (for a long key) is needless aggravation.

    If I am doing something wrong, someone please tell me. My point still stands. Even if I am doing something wrong, THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR ERASING THE WEP KEY.

    I realize that network manager has had alot of problems. I am getting ready to give WICD a try.
