Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: plasma-widget-networkmanagement

If I manage to connect successfully to a wireless network, the
credentials, etc. are stored in kwallet and networkmanager plasmoid
saves it as a profile.

Suppose the characteristics of the connection changes (I mean I have to reset the router because of some reason ) - however the SSID is the same - the plasmoid has problems connecting to the new network.
What I would expect is that it attempts to connect, fails and asks for a new password (this is what Gnome does).

But the plasmoid has several problems, it will refuse to initiate the
process of connecting that particular network, no matter how many times
you click on it.

What finally worked was to delete the profile from "Manage Connections"
and logout.
