    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?

    you don't tell us what desktop environment you use, but you do mention
    knetworkmanager so i assume you are using KDE...if that is the case,
    then i tell you that here when i try to connect to a wi-fi i am _not_
    asked for the root password by "Policykit" but, instead by either
    KWallet or something else known to me to 'manage' passwords on my system..

    i have at least three different looking pop-ups that (in general) say
    something like "provide the unlock value" or "the application is
    requesting authentication".....and, in all of those cases the root
    password is NOT the authentication being asked for--nor is it my user
    password used to log into KDE...but rather it is something
    different...for example, KWallet has its own unique password...and, that
    is the one i must give to authorize the wifi connection..

    i'm not absolutely certain i know exactly what is asking for which
    password--but *if* the popup actually asks for the "root password" then
    i'm a bit confused....and, wonder have you made any customizations to
    policykit or your systems general security settings?

    could you do a screen shot of whatever it is that is asking for the root
    password and post that to http://susepaste.org/ and then return the URL
    address back to this thread.

    otherwise, if the thing asking doesn't actually say "root" password,
    then try the password you set for KWallet..

    OH and maybe you are faced with a network manager asking for the
    password to access the wi-fi itself...all (except those open to the
    general public without login in) have such...have you provided the wi-fi
    ID and Password to network manager yet? if not be sure and do it, CAF
    gave you some hints on what to do..

    once you do that the ID/Pass will usually go into KWallet which you will
    then have to unlock next time...

    there may be a policykit involved, but if so i have never seen it come
    up and ask for the root password.

    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
