    Hi Enthalpie. I don't understand your issue with the KDE network manager yet, but can you please navigate to

    YaST >> Network Devices >> Network Settings >> Global Options

    and tell us if 'User Controlled with Network Manager' is checked?

    Like DD has suggested, do you mean the kwallet password, rather than the polkit password perhaps? PolicyKit (now Polkit) only determines whether or not a user has the necessary permission to create or edit system connections (as opposed to user-defined connections). So, hence the root password when attempting to configure.

    Your root password should have authenticated you. Lets have a look at a couple of polkit configurations

    Code:
    cat /etc/polkit-1/localauthority.conf.d/50-localauthority.conf
    You should have the default entry
    Code:
    [Configuration]
    AdminIdentities=unix-user:0
    What gets reported by the following?
    Code:
    pkaction --action-id org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.settings.modify.system --verbose
    For reference, I get
    Code:
    org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.settings.modify.system:
      description:       Modify network connections for all users
      message:           System policy prevents modification of network settings for all users
      vendor:            NetworkManager
      vendor_url:        http://www.gnome.org/projects/NetworkManager
      icon:              nm-icon
      implicit any:      no
      implicit inactive: no
      implicit active:   auth_admin_keep

    # Configuration file for the PolicyKit Local Authority.
    #
    # DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE, it will be overwritten on update.
    #
    # See the pklocalauthority(8) man page for more information
    # about configuring the Local Authority.
