Wireless connection not working
A few weeks ago I asked for help concerning difficulties with the wireless connection of a Dell Inspiron 700m. At the time I had to squeeze Debian in 10 Gb of hard disk and 512 Mb of memory.
I've just upgraded the HD to 160 GB and memory to 2 GB. This allowed me to install a full desktop envinronment. Wifi, configured with Gnome's Network Manager, is now working like a charm.
Thanks to all for your help!

Yes... what kind of wireless adapter does your computer use? Maybe you
need to install a closed firmware to get the card working :-?
*I know when I install xfce it uses wicd as well and I need to remove it and install gnome-networkmanager to get my wireless working. WICD does not even see my wireless network. *So figured it was a bug and I have the same router and same security configuration as you. So that would be my fix remove wicd and install network-manager.
