Running BT5-gnome-64 as VM in Virtualbox on an OSX Lion host....Prior to the apt-get update to R1 everything was working great.....The update trashed my VM and after cleaning things up, WICD will not connect to anything....


When I rebooted after the update, my entire VM was reverted back to "original" settings. Even after reinstalling the guest additions. Screen resolution was bad, lost my bridged network adapter (en1 as eth0), lost my USB filters, and my shared folders. It was like I had created a new VM and everything was reverted to default. I had to reconfigure Virtualbox, and got all of my settings restored.

When attempting to connect using my AWUS036H adapter, WICD gave its usual "could not connect to d-bus" error, which I promptly fixed. However WICD WILL NOT validate any passwords and connect to any AP's....I have tried 3 different AP's, using WEP, WPA, and WPA2...Ive tried WEP as HEX and passphrase...Ive tried WPA as passphrase and PSK...Cannot connect to anything...

Several times, WICD reports no wireless networks at all, as if the Alfa isnt connected....The virtualbox status bar indicates the Alfa is connected, and the Alfa itself had a working green light...WICD acts like it isnt there...WICD does however show my "wired" (host en1-eth0) connection and I can connect through that...I just cant connect through my USB Alfa....

The aircrack suite seems to work fine with the Alfa...I can inject and deauth anything, so I dont think this is a driver problem...Its something with WICD....

Im open to guidance and suggestions for solving this..Thanx guys...
