    to bring you down and disable the interface type:

    #ifdown eth0

    rgds,
    sl33p
    hi sleep

    Is it still necessary to set static IP in the /etc/network/interfaces file in the method your using?

    I having trouble basically trying to get any signals in wicd network manager with my Alfa 036h.
    My Alfa 036h uses interfaces wlan0 and mon1, does that mean I need to setup iface in /etc/network/interfaces file for mon1?

    Mines currently looks similar to below
    root@bt:~# cat /etc/network/interfaces
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback

    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet dhcp

    auto wlan0
    iface wlan0 inet dhcp

    address 192.168.0.7
    netmask 255.255.255.0
    network 192.168.1.1
    broadcast 192.168.0.255
    gateway 192.168.0.1
    Also, Im not sure the static ip details I've entered are correct. Anyone have any tutorials on this?
    Im not sure which details to put here if Im connecting to multiple wep connections for example?I bascially want to be able to go to Wicd, choose the connection and type in the wep key, if possible.
    Im using HDD install of bt4 on vmare.

    EDIT: found this tutorial- after i run through that it will probably answer my question.
