    Default Wicd doe not recognize alfa adapter

    Hello! I'm running BT5 32 bit kde version in vmware. Everything works great like airmon-ng, but wicd just does not want to scan for wireless networks. I tried putting interface down and restarting, but no luck. Any suggestions?
    eth0 connects fine btw

    I used to get this error on BT4R2 using awus036h.
    this was the only procedure that helped me make it work:
    Rtl8187 vs r8187 - BackTrack Linux

    try that.

    I had the same problem in BT4 if you are using RTL8187 the this should fix it up for you.

    1) Open a Konsole then type in iwconfig
    2) See what is the adapter name given
    3) Then open the Wicd -> Peferrences -> General Setting tab, Network Interface part, enter the wireless adapter name like wlan0 & save it

    That's what work for me...

    I also encountered the same problem (i got the following error:SIOCSIFFLAGS: Unknown error 132) when using VMware but restart the VMware will solve my problem...

    Maybe you guys can try /etc/init.d/wicd start or iwconfig wlan0 up "wlan0" being the name of your wireless adapter....not sure if this will make a difference in your guys case or not. Just thought I might put my 2 cents in : )
