edit the /etc/wicd/wireless-settings.conf and add the essid name
I checked and my essid name is in the file. The only thing I changed was the "hidden" property to "True"
I think I may have a lead on the problem
Connection attempts with Wicd always begin with
Disconecting active connections
The failed connection always ends with the message
Connection Failed: Bad password
If I try to connect maually:
iwconfig wlan0 essid xxxxx
iwconfig wlan0 mode Managed
iwconfig wlan0 channel Auto
iwconfig wlan0 ap any
# iwconfig wlan0
wlan0 IEEE 802.11bgn ESSID:off/any
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.412 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated
Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
The encryption key is active.
But if I run Wicd after the failed connection attempt iwconfig wlan0 always shows Encryption off!
The same thing happens if I try to connect manually with wpa_supplicant. Somehow my password is not getting passed to the router.
If I try
dhcpcd -t 25 -d wlan0
Which will not connect with WPA the encryption key remains intact.
Also Is ifplugd deprecated in VL7? I don't have it and therefore no /etc/ifplugd/ifplug.conf. So therefore VLwifi does not work?
