    Default WicD not displaying any AP's

    I've been searching for info about this problem but haven't had any luck.

    my wicd applet does not list any wireless APs even though I can see the wireless APs around me whenever I use the airodump-ng command.

    I'm not sure if this is a driver issue or not. I'm having trouble install the drivers for my Alfa AWUS036H 1000mW, but after searching around I think that it is supposed to work straight out the box.

    Can anyone help me out with this?

    Yes, it works out of the box with BackTrack. You have to select your alfa as the wireless interface on WICD settings. Otherwise, WICD will use your internal card.
