  • Linux Lite: 4.6 64bit

  • CPU: Intel Pent 4CPU 3.0GHz

  • MEMORY: 4Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Mesa DRI 945G
Whenever I reboot (cold, restart, hibernate) I have to enter my router password.

Is there any place to set the password that L Lite can find and use it?

Every time I enter the password, I get a newly enumerated connection - right now I am on connection #122.

That's just odd I think.

It's not a game-breaker - just bothersome.

TIA.

First I would remove all the wifi connections and then switch off - wait a few seconds and switch on. That is not the same as reboot.

Set up the connection then go to Network Manager and edit it. On the General tab check "allow all users to connect".

I would also consider switching off the Firewall in the Control Panel.

This may or may not help but it's a start.

I'm still working on this and it is not resolved yet.  :o

Same trouble - I followed the procedure to see if that helped - it didn't.

Does anyone have any ideas?

BTW: I have a list of over 73 connections that every time I sign-on, it adds another instance but won't sign in to just the first connection. Odd? I think so.
