Yes, i wouldn't want that. But the question is not about configuring. 
It's about reconnecting. It can perfectly connect at boot w/o asking any 
password. Now connection drops and all it should do is reconnect as it 
did at boot. Why ask for password now? :/
It should be quite easy to reproduce, just unplug router and plug it 
back, wifi is available but you are prompted for root password to 
connect. I don't want to share my root password so user could reconnect, 
other option seems to be reboot which isn't quite normal solution either :)
