network-admin doesn't remember network key

Bug #163766 reported by nucc1 on 2007-11-19

Bug Description

network-admin doesn't remember WPA passkey when manually configured. This happens when you attempt to change your IP address. If you change your IP address, it fails to connect, until you type your passkey again. You will notice that the key in the key input field is not of the correct length.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. The issue that you reported is one that should be reproducible with the live environment of the Desktop CD of the development release - Hardy Heron. It would help us greatly if you could test with it so we can work on getting it fixed in the next release of Ubuntu. You can find out more about the development release at . Thanks again and we appreciate your help.

As much as I would love to help, I have no access to the current testing release of ubuntu. I simply don't have access to the bandwidth to download it in a reasonable time-frame (I rely on shipit for my supplies :) ).

Hope someone else can pick it up from here...


This problem manifested itself on all releases since Feisty. I am now running Hardy and it still exists.
I need to choose the IP address for my home network manually, so I choose "manual configuration" in the network manager applet. I enter the password for my network in the appropriate input box. The network remains connected until I reboot my computer. After rebooting, I have to access network-admin again and type my password in order to connect.
