Thank You for the replies.
Aging Technogeek - I could not get the results that you listed. When I right-clicked on the network icon (at the bottom of my screen
) I got a popup that listed wired network, wireless network, vpn ..., configuration (1), and About which stated NetworkManager applet. I clicked on the wireless network line and it took me to the standard editing window with no mention of "Available to all users".
But I do have a solution sortof. My original reason for coming here was my searches brought up nothing. The reason that they brought up nothing was because I used "KDE" in the search. I changed that to "gnome" and a whole new list appeared. In LM8 the KDE network manager was replaced by the gnome network manager. On page three of the search results I looked athttp://davestechsupport.com/blog/2009/01/16/how-to-remove-ubuntus-password-keyring/
About two screens down I came across
1. Open up your Home Folder by clicking Places>Home Folder
2. Press CTRL-H (or click View>Show Hidden Files)
3. Find a folder called .gnome2 (it has a period at the beginning of the name) and open it by double clicking on it
4. In side of the .gnome2 folder, there is another folder called keyrings. Open it up.
5. Delete any files you find within the keyrings folder
6. Restart the computer
I followed these instructions in my own directory. Later when I entered the keyring password window I left them blank and clicked Always Allow
and now I have wireless access at boot.
I don't know if this is good OS management but it worked!
Thank You all again.
(1) Sorry for the generalness of the popup but the 4.4.0 machine is downstairs and my memory is not as good as it used to be.
