I just installed Fedora 15 beta with Gnome 3. I've done all the updates.

The networking applet asks for the wireless password every time it connects. I found this bug, which says that the issue is fixed in gnome-keyring-2.91.92-1.fc15. I have version 3.0.1-1.fc15, so this shouldn't be an issue.

Is there any other reason why the keyring wouldn't store the password?


Did you update {lib,}gnome-keyring-*.fc15 packages? If so, I am sure after restarting the host/Gnome session, this problem should go away.


I had the same issue with a much more recent Fedora version (F20), and gnome-keyring version was not the culprit.

Here is how I solved it :

  1. Right click on nm-applet.
  2. Click on "edit connections".
  3. Select the connection you're having issues with, then "edit".
  4. Go to the "Wi-Fi Security" tab and enter the wifi password.
  5. Save and exit.
