When I reinstalled Ubuntu, I logged in on my wifi and authenticated with a password that seahorse saved in "Default". But I want that in "Login" so that I won't have to enter my password twice everytime i reboot, how can that be done?

cd ~/.gnome2/keyrings
rm login.keyring
mv default.keyring login.keyring
echo -n "login" > default

(You may not need the last line, and I backed up the login.keyring rather than deleting it).

This worked for me.

Network manager selected in the panel


Selecting wireless network

And at last
