I'm not sure if this is a plasma-nm or a network-manager issue. Let's see, if
you set the connection to be shared between users (system connection) and in
autoconnect the connection is established by network-manager, without the need
of plasma-nm to do anything (I recommend setting your main network connection
this way, so your network connections doesn't depend on an applet being

If a system connection doesn't autoconnect then the issue needs to be
reassigned to network-manager.

For network-manager issues, it's better to just restart network manager.

On the plasma-nm side, afaik, plasma-nm can store the secrets in the
networkmanagement config directory and in kwallet, but I'm not sure what
happends if you have the secrets in both, or if one is wrong, etc.

Could you check if the contents of ~/.kde/share/networkmanagement/secrets/*
make sense with respect to the connections you have configured. The
connections can be listed with: nmcli -f all c
to obtain the ids.
