Auto login without the need for default keyring password

I've just installed Crunchbang on my eeepc and love it. 

I am having problems with the auto login feature and my wifi.  Everytime I boot it logs in automatically then asks me to 'Enter password for default keyring to unlock'.  If I use a wired connection it doesn't ask me and everything is fine, but I would like to use WIFI without it asking me for a password.  Is this possible?

I've found a few people who have said to delete the default.keyring from .gnome2/keyrings.  I have tried this and it still asks me for a password.  I've also tried setting the password through seahorse, but I don't have the same options as other people, maybe they are running a different version.  Would this allow me to enter a blank password anyway? and therefor not ask me for a password?

Re: Auto login without the need for default keyring password

Version: 8.10.01.i386

I've just worked it out actually.  I deleted .gnome/keyrings then when it asked me for my wireless password, I put that in and saved it.  Then it asks me for the default keyring password, here I enter a BLANK password and accept the following question.
