how to remove "Enter password for default keyring tu unlock"
Everytime i try to get online i get this message that says:

"Enter password for default key reing to unlock:

the application 'nm-applet' (/usr/bin/nm-applet) wants acces to the default keyring, but it is locked. Deny or Ok"

It doesn't take any of the passwords i know and after i click on deny i can connect to the internet, but it pops everyonce in a while and it gets me offline and its getting really annoying.

i have no idea how to remove it, any suggestions???? thanks!.

I only ever had this come up when my password to login, and my keyring password were different from each other. When they were the same, though, I only got prompted once for my password by the keyring, but that was to set it.

Try setting both passwords to be the same.

reset default keyring
rm ~/.gnome2/keyrings/default.keyring
redo it with a blank passwd

Recover my locked keyring password (usr/bin/nm-connections-editor) message [Redhat-gnome]
Hi all,

I had the same issue, never changed the keyring password, now suddenly I couldn't login. What I did was, using Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation release 6.6 (Santiago):

my keyring was located in /home/[username]/.gnome2/keyrings

create a backup keyring file: cp -r login.keyring login.keyring_backup

Go to: Systems > Preferences > Network Connections

Connect to a Wifi connection listed, enter WiFi password, it will ask you if you want to secure your connection. Choose "Use Unsafe", now it will store a blank password.

You will now have a new keyring file in /home/[username]/.gnome2/keyrings
