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

I tried below option, it worked for me.

1. Edit the wireless connection (Right-click the "Network Manager" icon on the panel at the top-right corner of the screen and click "Edit Connections.", Click the "Wireless" tab at the top of the Network Connections window, Select the wireless connection by clicking its name in the list, Click the "Edit" button)

2. Click the "Available To All Users" check box at the bottom of the connection window.
