comment No audio with headphones, but audio works with integrated speakers
@Pedro: I didn't have any sound at all, speakers or headphones. I think my solution will work only with intel sound cards, you should probably remove those lines from your alsa-base.conf.

comment Auto-connect to hidden wireless without elevating privelege
First I'd recommend not to use hidden network settings, because you'll have nothing but trouble from it (I am telling you this from my own personal experience). It is not a security feature, in fact, if you google it a bit, you'll discover that your network can actually be less secure with hidden SSID. It may also be the cause you need to elevate..

@DoR: No, but I'll try it. Perhaps it was only a one-time thing.

comment Wireless network unstable and often WPA2 protected networks just don't work
I had the same problem because my SSID was hidden. If this is the case with your network too, switch it off. Apparently, it doesn't improve your wireless security, but it will occasionally break connections on Linux. :-/
