Re: Problems configuring wireless with wicd on amd64 lenny


wicd just parses the outputs of ifconfig/iwconfig/iwlist/wpa_supplicant
commands. Maybe manually executing this sequence may help you to spot
the problem. Here it goes:

  # ifconfig wlan0 up

Now, you should be able to see the available list accessible APs:

  # iwlist wlan0 scan

If everything is ok so far, proceed to next.

  # iwconfig wlan0 essid <ESSID>

Than create an entry in your /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
file. Take mine as an example:

  # cat /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

Now cross your fingers and hope wpa_supplicant do the rest:

  # wpa_supplicant -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf -i wlan0 -d

The debugging output should tell you more. Inform us about the progress,
maybe we can help you further.
