Wi-fi asks for password everytime

Since the last update, now wi-fi asks for password everytime. I tried adding the password in the network configuration but the password form is blank everytime I open it, like it isn't saved. Any suggestion?

Re: Wi-fi asks for password everytime

What do you mean with "the network configuration"? How are you managing your network right now?
If you are using NetworkManager, have you checked https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Networ … leshooting?

What is "everytime"? Once after booting, or periodically (e.g. every few minutes)?

Everytime at boot. Also, if I disconnect the wifi and try to connect again, I need to input the password again. I must also add that I get an error when I log in (impossible to access tags://) which I wasn't getting before.

Are you using NetworkManager?

Yes. Although, I think the problem is with KDE wallet, which apparently has stopped working after an update.

Re: Wi-fi asks for password everytime

As you assert this is a kwallet issue, I assume these are user specific passwords and are not system wide (meaning you will have no network connection until you log in) and that you are using plasma as your desktop environment.
How do you start plasma ?
