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.
