Re: nm-applet requests secrets for non-secured network

Fabulous, thanks for the pointer. I ended up having to delete ~/.gnome2/keyrings/login.keyring and now it works fine.

Here's the kicker: changing the AP to a different ESSID and

something stored on the laptop that is making it "guess" that it

no luck.

Sigh, network-manager caching fun. It's probably cached a
secret for that ESSID (for whatever reason) in the gnome
keyring. Use gnome-keyring-manager (if you're using stable)
to find and delete the cached entry.
