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
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
  up route add -net netmask dev lo
  down route del -net netmask dev lo

Wicd will not work with a wlan0 entry or an eth0 entry in the interfaces file.

Ok.  removed

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 available SSIDs and then I can do the configuration from the GUI.

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.
