How can non-admin users connect to Wi-Fi networks?

http://askubuntu.com – I'm trying to configure polkit so that other users are allowed to configure wifi connections, but my changes don't seem to bring any results at all. When a non-admin user tries to connect to a new wifi, I get the "System policy prevents modification of network settings for all users" box. It asks for the admin user's password. Ok - that one goes via policy kit, so I thought I'll just change the configuration for action org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.settings.modify.system. I created a file /etc/polkit-1/localauthority.conf.d/52-wifi-management.conf with content: [Wifi management] Identity=u (HowTos)
