    Question wicd problems

    Hi there,

    I am relatively new to backtrack but i have been using Linux systems such as fedora and Ubuntu, but I'm having some trouble with the wicd interface which I'm using as a wireless connection.

    I have checked the compatible wireless adapters and my USB adapter is in the list based on rt2800. The problem is the USB device is showing up when i issue iwconfig in console along with the driver information etc... but it seems that its not being assigned an address or picking up any networks. I have tried starting networking trying the rt2800 fix on the backtrack wiki.

    I currently have one connection that is working which is eth0 all is fine with this, the only problem is i cant seem to pick up any networks using the wicd manager although it is showing up in konsole when the commands are issued.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    UPDATE:
