Gnome Keyring for WiFi passwords

2007.04 - Feisty

Now that the ThinkPad T60 is working well enough for daily use, I'm actually using it enough that I've found some annoyances. One such bugaboo that was easily remedied was gnome-keyring's insistence on having me authenticate with my password every time I needed to hop on a WEP-protected network. Thankfully, the solution is quite straightforward. Now, with NetworkManager, wifi under Linux is approaching the ease of Mac OSX. Hooray! Hopefully this simple change will be the default in Feisty+1.
