    Can you browse the router's settings via 192.168.*.* (or whatever your router uses) ? (wired/wireless)

    I had problems with my ath5k driver. Not sure if it would be the same issue, but I actually just posted a little how-to for the AspireOne and I think it's a worth a shot as well. Did a quick google search for you and one of the first hits was on the Ubuntu forums. A member there with many posts suggested exactly what I did, and install the madwifi-hal driver for the card. It will give you wifi0 and ath0 as your interfaces. After I installed the new madwifi-hal driver, everything worked perfectly so I'd say if all else fails under the ath9k driver, try installing this new one. Reference my most recent thread for the link on how to get and install the new driver. And here's the other forum post I found where a guy had a similar, though not the same, issue as you. Hope it helps!

    Excuse the formatting. Not enough posts yet.

    On second thought, this may not work...because you had previously said you had problems connecting even when wired directly to the router. You did say you were okay when connecting to Belkin routers however. So maybe for the purpose of just updating/installing the madwifi-hal drivers, you may want to connect to a Belkin if at all possible just to be able to download the files needed.

    I was considering this option, but i really think the problem is Wicd. I will try kwlan first and see if it is just the program. I feel that Wicd is not a stable program. Personally I do not like it, i would rather go back to Network Manager. Just by going through the forum, because i have tried to search before i posted my problem. It seems like alot of people have problems with Wicd as well.

    ok so after alot of testing i figured out my problem. My problem was the DNS. I could ping IP address but not DNS. So i needed some way of connecting to the internet to reinstall wicd to clear out the data so i did,

    service network start

    to get connection to the ethernet which worked. Then i reinstalled wicd and cleared out the existing settings. and it worked.

    I did not need to uninstall/install any drivers.

    dmsg was a great command to figure out my problem.

    Sounds like a good idea.

    How i figured out what was wrong was the resolv.conf file was not handshaking the right DNS. For some reason Belkin was listed in the file which makes sense why it would only connect to Belkin routers. Once i knew what was going on, i pinged the IP address alone, then the DNS which conquered that the DNS was not working. Which makes sense why i had a connection but no Internet. So, that made me believe Wicd had a problem with the settings. So i cleared out all traces of wicd and reinstalled it with the service network.
