I have a Trendnet TEW-421PC which has a Realtek 8185 chipset.
Which wicd files do you have installed?
All of them
wicd.log log says:
Unable to autoconnect
I also use wicd. Here is the interfaces file
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
up route add -net 127.0.0.0 netmask 255.0.0.0 dev lo
down route del -net 127.0.0.0 netmask 255.0.0.0 dev lo
Wicd will not work with a wlan0 entry or an eth0 entry in the
Instead you have to configure the /etc/wicd/*.conf files
manager-settings.conf wired-settings.conf wireless-settings.conf
they each have a man page.
I have not had to do this directly before. Usually wicd shows me the

I have the feeling that something is broken at a lower level.
I will try adding the ESSID to wireless-settings.conf
If you are trying to connect to a secure AP you will also have to
install the wpasupplicant package and configure it as well.
