Today I've updated my Pi (model B) to raspian jessie and wanted to configure my wifi settings with the pre-installed network manager, wich is reachable in the right corner of the lxpanel.

But after every reboot I have to put in the passphrase again.

I've tried multiple ways to configure the wifi using /etc/network/interfaces and /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf, but I'm not able to establish a wifi-connection, without the preinstalled graphical wifi-manager. I've even copied my old files from wheezy (which worked perfectly) to get things to work, but no chance ..

Now I've changed every file back to its original.

Does anyone know a solution for my problem?

I've solved my problem by reinstalling raspbian and configuring the wifi via editing /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf.

The preinstalled gui seems to be not working correctly in my case.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.
