i think you would need to give a much detailed explanation of what you are doing and what is the problem that you are encountering. Then someone will step up and try to offer solutions or ask for more details to help get a solution. good luck
Don’t know what to add, … the problem is in the subject - when starting or resuming both of these netbook systems, a message box pops up titled:
“System policy prevents modification of network settings for all users”, and must be dismissed before logging in or resuming the session. [Neither dismiss or authorize makes any difference in functionality.]
Cannot find anything in the Forums, … but there are number of mentions for Ubuntu - unfortunately, none of those fixes work.
I have more data available, but, for some reason, attachments are disabled.
Then it should not be the polkit problem that some people were having.
I am unable to reproduce the problem. I switched my laptop from “wicked” to “NetworkManager”, switched the login to use “gdm”, and then rebooted and logged into Gnome. I configured home WiFi. And it is working, except that I cannot find a Gnome option to change the MTU or to change the IPv6 privacy options.
Is there something non-standard that you are doing to your network connection, such as sharing it with all users or setting a non-default network property of some kind?
Simply in the post. Copy/paste the text (that is inclusing the prompt, the command and the next prompt) between CODE tags. You get the CODE tags by clicking on the # button in the tool bar of the post editor.

The main people who are having problems similar to this are using KDE. And they were not having problems back in December – only in the last week or two.
However there is one special. If you configure the network under KDE, and then switched to using Gnome, then you probably would run into problems. If you configured with KDE under opensuse 13.2, then upgraded your system to 42.1 and Gnome, you might run into problems.
Can you tell us whether either of these circumstances applies?
After installing the OpenSUSE leap 42.1 (kde now 5.5.1 version) I’ve struggled with wifi not saving the password problem . Practically everyone said: You can check “All users may connect to this network” in General Settings. It led to another problem, this one of course!  . We have no choice, either put the wifi password (setting up it again and again) or put the root password and wait the nm establish the network.

I don’t want to install another DE - I love KDE!
So, it deserves a bug report?
PS.: Another thing that takes me on crazy is the hidden authentication dialog syndrome . Can you see it? It always hidden.
Edit connections in NetworkManager.
Select the particular connection of concern to edit.
Go the the Security tab. Look for the place where you enter the network key.
Next, maximize the edit window. Or if it is already maximized, the unmaximize it. (The need to do this is a different but).
Toward the right of the space where you enter the key, there should be two icons to click. One of them allows you to select where to save the password. As I recall, the options are: in the user settings, unencrypted system settings, enter the password every time. Choose the unencrypted system settings (the wording might be a little different). You probably still need to enter the network key in that slot. Save the changes. And, thereafter, you should be set.
