Package: plasma-widget-networkmanagement
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I changed my (NT) password on my corporate network, then tried to connect
to the corporate WiFi the next day.  When attempting to connect, a small
window popped up with only one field: an unchecked checkbox labeled "Show
password." Nothing appeared to happen when I checked or unchecked the
checkbox or closed the window.  Of course, the WiFi never finished
connecting.  After I realized the problem and changed my password (click on
network icon | Manage Connections... | Network Connections | Wireless |
<connection name> | Edit... | Wireless Security | Password), I connected
with no problems.

I would have expected a more-obvious error message, perhaps along the lines
of, "Unable to connect due to incorrect password."  Having just a single
field only tangentially related to the password was not helpful.

I'm sorry for not including a screenshot of the popup window or its exact
text, but I'm not allowed to change my password again for 10 days so I
can't try to replicate the issue today.

I installed from testing, and it solves the problem: when I tried
to connect to WiFi after having changed my network password a box popped up
with a "Password:" field to fill out.  I entered my new password and
connected successfully.

Thank you.
