GNOME - Automatic Login/Keyring

Ok, here's my situation in a nutshell. I have a computer running Fedora 11 here which I want to be able to automatically start up into GNOME and access my encrypted wireless network. I've achieved the former part by following the instructions on this website. However, GNOME will not access my WiFi due to the WPA key being on the GNOME keyring, and the GNOME keyring isn't unlocked due to it being an automatic login. Is there a work-around that I can apply here?

Many many thanks.

EDIT: Found a work-around. Made my WiFi connection applied systemwide, so the GNOME keyring was not required to connect to the network.
