Hello, I have a fresh installed peppermint.

The authentification of my wifi password fails. Booting in a live version of peppermint I get access, but now in the fixed installed OS my pw isn't accepted.
The Internet works with cable.
Thanks Martin

Can you tell us exactly what that popup box says.

IIRC, you get 2 boxes .. the first prompts with "System policy prevents modification of network settings for all users" (or similar) .. this wants your LINUX password,

then you get another prompt for "Authentication required by Wi-Fi network" (or similar) .. this wants your WIRELESS key.

It works now. I had to crate a new item using the Network Connection tool.
Thanks Martin
