When booting my laptop, it will try to connect to my wireless network, however a window keeps popping up asking me for my security password, which has already been saved.
I have to keep deleting my network settings, and reconnecting, otherwise it keeps failing to connect.
My wireless is set up with a WPA, I do not want to lower my security because of this, but it is a pain and can take me 15mins plus to finally connect.
The problem has only become apparent since a fresh install of 11.10.
01:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetLink BCM57780 Gigabit Ethernet PCIe (rev 01)

In terminal I get this:
pst007x@pst007x-ubuntu64:~$ nm-applet start ** Message: applet now removed from the notification area ** (nm-applet:2816): DEBUG: old state indicates that this was not a disconnect 0 ** Message: using fallback from indicator to GtkStatusIcon ** Message: applet now embedded in the notification area ** Message: No keyring secrets found for Auto Access 01/802-11-wireless-security; asking user. ** (nm-applet:2816): DEBUG: foo_client_state_changed_cb
Note this line:
** Message: No keyring secrets found for Auto Access 01/802-11-wireless-security; asking user.
At this point is where I am asked for the password.
