Bug Description

This bug is partly a duplicate of

A friend of me just changed to Ubuntu. Her Windows freezed and then she started to use the secondary OS which was installed on her computer (by me). Ibex 8.10.

Her DHCP settings aren't automatic, she has to set it manually. (I described her how and it was succesful.) But the changes weren't saved, next time she had to enter the numbers again. I advised her the workaround described in the link on the top.

My problem is that I cannot switch off the wireless network: when I restart the computer it will be activated again. I remember it worked fine in 7.10, 8.04. (The current network manager version is 0.7.0.)

I use mobile HSDPA network. I always have to enter the keyring password. Anyway does somebody know how this keyring-thing works? I don't want to enter the password every time. In evolution there was a time when without asking the default keyring password it has been worked fine, but now it also asks for the pass.

The very last bug report for today about nm is that another friend of me wanted to start using Ubuntu. I installed it. She is using HSDPA mobile internet in Hungary, T-Mobile network, and Web'n'walk USB stick. But this stick is not recognised by the system. Here is a not-very-international discussion about this problem:

But I didn't have the time to solve it, so she still uses Vista. I tried my Huaweii E220 and it has been working fine! But one more bug report:

The default entries are wrong for Vodafone Hungary. The username and password are 'vodafone' and not 'vodawap'.
