Wireless Network Key
 
Is there a way for me to enter my wireless network key so that I do
not need to enter it each time I connect? I'm running version 8.04.

Thanks!

Yes of couse, I am not sure right now because I am at work, but you can
store it, havent you see a Remember Password in Gnome-Network-Manager?,
I am using Wicd now, its really good, and I can store setting for many
conections.

Bash is your friend. Just write a small shell script that includes the
key. I do that for most of my wireless connections.

But be warned, that's a potential security risk, so lock that script
down tight.
