No, i don't need to enter again my password. So the keystore_server shouldn't be the culprit.

I have momentarily solved with the following workaround: Inside UserBootScript i have added
ifconfig /dev/net/atheroswifi/0 join MYSSID
But is only a temporary workaround :-)

I have the same problem with my Atheros WLAN adapter, the network also WPA2.
Haiku (recent nightly gcc2h) does not ask for password, it just does not connect automatically, so i need to go to the right click menu of NetworkStatus replicant, and select my SSID, then it connectin without problem.
I will try the UserBootScript workaround, but it would be better to locate and eliminate this bug for the new users.

I does work for my iprowifi4695 after setting the WLAN in the Network preferences. Have you tried that?

On a hunch... does the SSID that is problematic contain a space? I have noticied that common SSID names with spaces like "FritzBox NNNN" seem to not work for reconnecting, but I have other single name SSID's that do work.
Yesterday I renamed a SSID from the FritzBox NNNN style to a single word name and afterwards the new SSID managed to autoconnect, thus my hunch that this might be related to spaces. (could also explain https://dev.haiku-os.org/ticket/14043)

The SSID has no space. It's a one block "UPCxxxxxxx" (x= numbers)

Still present in hrev56391. With Haiku starting to look like it's ready for prime time, this should probably be addressed.
comment:15 by , 9 months ago
Yeah, probably. It's only two clicks to do it manually if you have the password saved, but that's two clicks less than every other OS :)
Likely the entire autoconnect logic needs to be totally scrapped and rewritten. It's never worked for me, anyway.

It works fine for me most of the time, maybe somebody should check how it works first before scrapping it :P

The problem is still here with hrev56836.
Do you need to enter your password after connecting to your SSID?
