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.
