This is weird, after I spent 2 days trying to get my Wicd working I ran into a problem after reseting my backtrack 4 final.
Iwlist will not scan wlan0! I need it to scan in order to get Wicd to recognize available networks!
Backtrack 4 Final

SEE! It sees that I have a network open in airodump-ng but for some reason it will not do a iwlist scan so Wicd can be available for me to use my wireless usb online. If anyone has any suggestions as to what may be the problem and can lead me in the right direction this will be well appreciated.
