nm-applet asks to enter password.


Hi,

I use fedora 12. I am facing this problem. Not exactly a problem but I can sure use a work around.

I usually connect to wireless network. The connection is automatic so whenever the connection goes down, it is automatically restored.

But sometimes, the connection goes down, nm-applet asks me to enter the password and will not proceed until I have entered the password. I have observed that this usually happens when the request to connect takes a long time or the wifi router does not respond immediately.

Is there way to change this behaviour? I want nm-applet to keep trying until its connected and not ask me for a password. This way I can be sure that my laptop is always connected and does not need my intervention.

THanks.

nm-applet is (still) "not very good software".
Please try installing wicd and then removing nm-applet
wicd works well
