how to stop password request to connect to network
 
mandriva 2006: is it possible to stop the request for pw whenever i try to connect to ethernet or wireless w/ the little link icon on the taskbar? it gets annoying.

also, seems like i always have to go to control center to initiate wireless/ndiswrapper routine to activate my wireless card after each reboot. the wireless card lights dont' go on til i do that...weird. any ideas?

Ahhh...
I had this with an Atheros card (ie mandriva seemed to forget ndiswrapper).

Try - configue your system - add new wireless interface - use existing windows driver - with ndiswrapper (using mandriva control centre).
And configue it for the card in question.

Then it seems to remember ndiswrapper is installed (this is from memory so I may have missed a few steps..)
HTH.

PS not a clue about the Password issue, sorry.
