Where can I change the password for the default keyring? It still wants to use my old password to unlock wireless connections.

Follow these steps to change the default keyring password:

  1. Go to Accessories -> Password and Encryption Keys
  2. Click on the Passwords tab
  3. Right click on Passwords: default (or maybe it says Passwords: login)
  4. Select Change Password
  5. Enter the old password (probably the one you entered on installation of Ubuntu)
  6. Enter the new password you want, and enter it again for confirmation
  7. Click Change

And you're done!
