http://ubuntuforums.org – I switched to wicd a few months ago because it seemed to switch between wired and wireless very smoothly. It's been a while since I've used wireless and now when I try I get Quote: Connection Failed: Bad Password every the time. I know the password is correct b/c it is the pw I use everywhere on my laptop as well as the router and I am writing this on an old winxp box wirelessly. I've gone into /etc/wicd/wireless-settings.conf and confirmed passwd. I've tried it in quotes, I've converted to hexidecimal - same error. I have network-manager and network-man (HowTos)
