# Ubuntu – How to automatically connect to a wireless network with auto-login

10.0410.10gnome-keyringnetwork-managerwireless

I want NetworkManager to automatically connect to the wireless network. I've configured my account to automatically log in (using System > Administration > Login Window) and I get prompted to unlock my GNOME keyring.

From researching this, it would appear that I should be able to disable the security on the keyring by blanking the password. However, if I change the password of the default keyring to blank so that it uses "Unsafe Storage" and automatically log in, I am prompted with a "Wireless Network Authentication Required" request. The password field is already filled in but does not seem to have been used.

So how do I convince NetworkManager and the GNOME Keyring to work without requiring me to log in with a password, or to enter my keyring password?

1. Remove Password and Encryption Keys (seahorse), the program responsible for keyrings.
