    Default wlan0 doesn't work in wicd, but works in airodump.


    Ik have a Asus EEE PC 900 with a working wlan-card (using the standard driver from backtrack). When i start using airodump, i see all my wifi-networks in my neighboorhood. Airmon-ng gives me:

    Interface Chipset Driver
    wlan0 Atheros ath5k - [phy0]

    So, i am assuming that all is working fine.

    Now, if i start running wicd-client.. i get: "No wireless networks found".

    My WPA Supplicant Driver is wext.

    I've discovered that using /etc/init.d/networking start gives me the following:

    wlan0: unknown hardware address type 803

    Is this correct? Offcourse, i don't have a connection..

    In the wicq-client, try to use the madwifi driver.
    And, maybe if you want, read this: About/ath5k - - Trac

    Another good link for you:
    ath5k - Linux Wireless
