Well, the problem is, that rt73usb isn't working with wpa_supplicant with this kernel (2.6.22-14). See http://www.dlutt.de/forum/blog.php?b=7&goto=next for details.
So I really have to use network manager. Is there any other way to save the WPA-Password, e.g. in a txt-file, and pass this file to network manager? Are there any other options how to start gnome-keyring without a password?
