Thread: Lose connection on reboot

  1. #1

    Default Lose connection on reboot

    Error - KDE Control Module (Configure - KDE Control Module Wireless tab) Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken. I think the later. While waiting, the authorization dialog appeared and I see that the key was totally missing. Once I entered it, I was again connected properly. What could have cause this and what can I do to remedy the situation so I don't have to do this each time I reboot?

    What version of openSUSE? The details depend on that little piece of
    information; however, in general I would use the NM applet connection editor to
    delete all connections, and then recreate them. To get automatic connection,
    select the "Connect automatically" box. When you create the connection, have it
    stored in the wallet. If you do not want to enter a password for the wallet when
    the system starts, give the wallet a blank password. Security is compromised,
    but it works.

    13.1 and now I'm in a real pickle, not able to connect at all. I've done everything suggested but cannot get KDE Wallet to store the password. It never materializes at all. I've configured every way I know how and it just is not working for me at the time. Is there anything else you might suggest as to how possibly to return to a default configuration and then walk through to a final one? Thanks for your help.

    One more note: If I try to edit the connection I get a similar error

    Error - Plasma Desktop Shell... (repeat of the other error).

    Unknown as to why I cannot edit these created network connections but I think this may be a signal as to where I've misconfigured. That is all.

    Under Start => Applications => System => Security, you will find the Wallet
    Management Tool. It should allow you to delete the wallet.

    This initializes nothing. I have configured (painted) myself into the proverbial corner. Having experimented with too many settings I fear I need a reset option which allows me to default back to the initial settings from which I can again configure to a working system. This is the result of a newbie stressing in vain trying anything to obtain the desired result of regaining my wireless connection. For that I am embarrassed and at the mercy of your kind assistance.

    Well, through my Alice in Wonderland trip of resetting configurations and the like, I managed to plug in my ethernet cable and something magical happened, I know not what, but the error messages no longer appear but the connection did. I was ecstatic that my voyage into the unknown had ended so auspiciously and good for the mind. There is something here that I have yet to lay my hands on but it seems most peculiar that simply creating an ethernet connection would allow my continued efforts to bear fruit and have the wireless connection just work.
    Anyway, thanks for the kind assistance and hand holding when I needed it.
