    Default Backtrack 4 Final R1 Wicd help

    When i click connect on Wicd on a network, it says validating authentication and then bad password. I'm using the real WEP key but not letting me connect

    I'm using Realtek RTL8187 network adapter, any help would be apprecaited

    Thank you
    Mike

    are you using the gui?

    if so, have you set the correct type?

    ie hex, passphrase, shared/restriced

    I'm having the exact same problem... I did get an error message saying to check the error log when I first started wicd also... I can't find a file browser either so I can check /usr/bin/ either, but that might tell us more...

    My good friend who suggested changing it to hex, forgive me for disregarding your post at first.

    I'm now connected. Try changing it from WPA 1/2 passphrase to WEP hex or each of the other options. Even though I thought it was a WPA 2, apparently this is what was needed to connect.

    Backtrack 4 R-1 up and running!

    Make sure your networking service has started before trying to connect to a network. I had the exact same problem until I realized that you had to turn on networking - it's an easy mistake to make.

    Very simple:

    Open a Terminal, up a daemon (wicd) and:

    # wicd

    and "Backtrack Dragon"->"Internet"->"Wicd"

    Firebits? What is that? And maybe you are selecting the wrong encryption type for when you type in your password.
