How to fix Ubuntu unlock wireless/Gnome keyring issues19 Apr 2013
Even if you manage to get wireless/wifi working fine in Ubuntu, one annoying issue (if you have auto login set) will be that the ‘Gnome keyring’ will keep prompting you for a password every time you login or wake from hibernation - so that it could connect to my Wi-Fi network.
The solution is simple but one you shouldn’t have to worry about:
- Right click the Network Manager icon in your panel
- Select Edit Connections, and switch to the Wireless tab
- Select the connection you want to work with and click the Edit button
- Check the boxes for Connect Automatically and Available to all users.
