    Default Can't connect to the internet?

    I have tried many guides on here but I just cant connect to the internet?
    I have a Usb Adapter (belkin F5d7050b)
    I can see my wifi connection and other but I cant connect to it

    When I go to Wicd Managaer and hit connect to my wifi access point It says "connecting" and it just keeps loading.
    And once its done its not connected.

    What can I do to fix this ?

    Well try get your networking running first and foremost.

    /etc/init.d/wicd start

    Then open Wicd Manager and Select Properties for the connection. Then fill in the necessary stuff including IP address if no DHCP is present and ensure you run
    echo "dns server ip" > /etc/resolv.conf

    With that you have a valid IP and DNS server configured. You can therefore connect no hassles.

    try :
    # iwlist scan
    find the wlan you have access to
    assuming the wireless card is wlan0
    # iwconfig wlan0 essid "NAME" key s:

    then get the ip from the dhcp of the wlan

    #dhclient wlan0

    run again iwconfig just to make sure everything is OK


    there are some things you cand o manually or use the wicd to connect
    better use command line
