    My root password doesn't work with network


    Hi,
    I have a really strange, and ANNOYING problem...
    I can use my root password when y type "su" or when accesing some files,
    but when trying to configure the network to use Wifi, and having to write that password (to enter "Network"), it tells me the password is not correct... I just don't get it.

    I have restarted millions of times with no result...
    Anybody has had this kind of problem?

    P.S: Connection with cables to the web goes OK (since I don't have to enter
    the password)

    Is it possibly the password manager that is looking for the password? In that case it would not be the root password. If you don't remember this keyring password you can delete ~/.gnome/keyrings for gnome or any relevent kwallet files if you use KDE.

    Hi mate.
    Yes, I use Gnome, but it says it is not possible to delete such file since it
    doesn't exist
    I have searched for folders of Gnome and it can't find any...

    Any ideas?
