Networkmanager doesn't automatically ask for password for new network

When I connect to a WPA & WPA2 Personal network that I haven't connected to before, I get an instant notification: "The network has been disconnected". I have to go in manually with "Edit Connections" and add the password, then it works fine. Is there a way to have it automatically ask for the password instead? Thanks.

If I'm not mistaken, it's network-manager-applet which takes care of that. Do you have it installed?

Yes, I have network-manager-applet installed. Everything works except that it doesn't ask me for a password for any new network I try to connect to. It should do that, right?

Re: Networkmanager doesn't automatically ask for password for new network

I have the same problem.

Installed networkmanager today and network-manager-applet don't ask me the wireless key of the available networks.

If i edit manually it works fine.

Any ideas?

Solved

It's a dependency problem.
I'm using xfce4 and network-manager-applet needs gnome-keyring to ask the wireless key.

pacman -S gnome-keyring

Re: Networkmanager doesn't automatically ask for password for new network

This is still true today. Where could I suggest to add 'gnome-keyring' as an optional dependency for 'network-manager-applet'?

You might frown upon this, but I would report it as a bug through the bugtracker.
