Yes, that is a PITA. Assuming that you are using KDE, If you click on the network icon in the system tray then click on the little wrench in the top right corner, select your connection and click 'Edit'. On the 'General Configuration' tab select "All users may connect to this network".

Unless it is KDE wallet, then I don't know because I disable Wallet before I set anything up. Wallet just frustrates me.

Open KWalletManager from the applications menu (try entering it the search box). Then make the password and the confirmation blank. It will probably warn you that it's a weak password, but that's okay. It shouldn't bother you again after that.

I don't think you want to just disable it, because then if you use kmail, for example, you'll have to enter your email password every time it tries to sync.

About my previous post: I should mention, if you do this (use a blank password for KDE wallet), someone who steals your computer would be able to see whatever passwords may be stored there if he/she can get into your user account. If you're concerned about this, don't do the blank password thing. I don't know if there's any potential risk of a remote attacker from doing something similar. So please take my advice with caution. For my own peace of mind, I think I am going to make my KDE wallet password non-blank now just because my email password is stored there.
