This is a recent issue. Whenever I start up my laptop, it will attempt to automatically connect to my school network (WPA2-Enterprise) as it should. However, it prompts me for the password on the login screen every time (unless I log in before it is able to attempt the connection). I have checked/tried the following

  • /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections has root read-write permissions.
  • 'All users may connect to this network' is checked in the network's settings by default, and I have unchecked, saved, and rechecked just to make sure.
  • The (correct) password is indeed saved in the network settings

I've noted that there is no problem attempting to manually/automatically connect when I have already logged in. I even logged in and back out and then switched the wireless on and off, and it didn't have an issue connecting again. Any advice?

edit; I previously thought this was a general issue with all networks, however I believe it only occurs when connecting to my school's WPA2-Enterprise network, not my WEP personal router.

I have the same issue, so far there is no fix yet. See – Dionysius Sep 23 '13 at 11:35
Check out this bug on Launchpad On graphical login, Network Manager window gets in the way. Is this the problem you have? If yes mark the bug as affecting you too. The more people a bug affects the more priority the developers will give to fixing it. – Warren Hill Sep 23 '13 at 11:45
It sounds about the same so I'll mark the bug. However it only affects one network, which has WPA2-Enterprise security, so it certainly isn't universal. I'll stay tuned for workarounds. – Alex Sep 23 '13 at 13:23
