Configure to save password

This differs depending on whether you are using KDE or Gnome, but you should be given the option to save the password. I would avoid using Kwallet or anything like that. Just have it save the "default" way. To find this, you'll need to look at your connection configuration.

In Kubuntu, right-clicking on the KNetwork Manager and then selecting config brings up an option of storing passwords in a config file.
