wicd has been a bit problematic since I installed it. It took various
adjustments before it got to this stage.
I have never had a problem of any kind with wicd before, and I have installed
I have Googled - which is how I got this far. Each tiny step in sorting out
wicd took much Googling.
I have purged and reinstalled wicd. I have dpkg-reconfigured it.
When I try to connect I get the message that no wireless connection is
available. There are in fact 7 within easy wireless reach, one of them my
own, and my wireless router is currently about 9 inches away from the netbook
on the same desk.
Where do I go next??

could be of some help.
