Question: I changed the password of my Ubuntu account from System -> Preferences -> About me.
After this change password, anytime I login using the new password, my wireless doesn’t connect automatically. Instead, it prompts me a dialogue “Enter password to unlock your login keyring”, and I have to enter my old login password to get the wireless connection working. How do I fix this problem?
Answer: Anytime you change your ubuntu login password, you should also change your keyring password. If you don’t do it, it might display the following dialoge when you do certain things on your system (for example, connecting to wireless).
To change the keyring password, do the following.
Go to System -> Preferences -> Passwords and Encryption Keys, which will display the following dialogue.
From here, select “Passwords: Login” -> right-mouse click -> and select “Change Password”.
From here, you can change the new password for the login keyring as shown below.
