So I was setting up my Eduroam wifi on my computer and was prompted to always allow "eapolclient wants to access key SecureW2 JoinNow Private Key." I accidentally selected disable and now when I try to get my computer to show that screen again, it never comes back up. I don't want to go through the hassle of restoring my computer to a previous version so I was hoping there was another way to reset my wifi settings or keychain access so I could get the dialogue box to show always allow and select that option. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

What happens if you go to System Preferences > Network Settings, select that network > click Advanced, select the network again, and click the minus button to remove it. When you re-add it, does the prompt appear?

I was never able to connect to the network so it’s not visible in my list of previously connected networks. I ended up just resetting my Mac from a previous time machine backup and now everything is working as it should. I appreciate the advice though!
