wicd won't connect to a particular wireless net while Windows will
odd thing I'm experiencing. I'm at a family member's house for the holiday and was trying to use their wifi. Its a WEP connection (I tried to tell them to change but they won't listen). In the wicd connection manager, I see their network, set the encryption to WEP (passphrase), enter the password, and hit connect. It says bringing up the card, checking authentication, then gets to Acquiring IP address, sits there for a minute, then times out saying unable to connect.
I know I used the right password because it passed the Authenticating part (tested with a wrong password that hangs at this point).
I know that my wifi card works because I used a store's unsecured wifi connection through wicd.
I know the wifi network works because my brother's windows netbook can get on just fine
I'm running through the same router right now with a wire instead.
Any ideas as to why I can't connect wirelessly?
Only thing I could think of was that I had to specifically enable wep or something. But I don't know if thats it or not.
