I'm really enjoying using the new NetworkManager applet on my wireless laptop in Fedora Core 5 - makes roaming much easier.
My only quible is that it forgets the settings for my home network. I have a 'hidden/non-broadcast' network-name/essid for my home network which is not using any Wireless security standards...
When booting my machine into GNOME, I click the nm-applet and choose to 'Connect to another wireless network'. I then enter my home wireless network name and set Wireless Security to none in the dialog box. When I press Ok, the applet successfully connects to my Wireless network and I can happily surf, etc. However, if I reboot or suspend/resume, the applet forgets the network name, doesn't show it in the list of available networks and as a result does not re-connect to the wireless network. I have to click on the applet again and expliclty re-add the network name, every time after a re-boot.
Any idea how I can make the applet remember my explictly added ssid.s so that it lists them and tries to re-connect following a re-boot,, etc, without the need to re-enter my network name every time?
