Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 176728
user password required for system-wide WEP key

The new version of NetworkManager makes me enter my password to the GNOME
keyring thingy before it will connect to the wireless network.
The WEP key is a system-wide thing; that's why it's stored in
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/key-eth1. NetworkManager ought to connect without
user interaction, as it used to in FC4.

Cloning this regression against FC4 too, since it seems to have made its way
I'm sure I'd reported this problem while it was only in updates-testing -- is
there any point in testing stuff from there?
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
Bug 174467 covers the same problem in rawhide. This bug was opened specifically
for the regression in FC4, because we shipped an update which broke this even
after the problem was originally reported.
