bt5 r2 "wicd "wireless bad password and unable to connect to access point errors
 
hi

i am using bacttrack 5 r2 via vm workstation

I was using WICD 1.7.0 but I always got the "BAD PASSWORD" error when i was trying to connect to my own wireless router and i am sure the password is correct , so I spent a couple of days reading forums to try to fix it, and I found a few saying that reverting to WICD 1.6.x solved there problems. So I reverted back to 1.6.2.2, and I got past the authentication, but then was unable to get an IP, so I set a static IP, and it now says unable to connect to access point.
my wireless adapter is:
Realtek RTL8188CU Wireless LAN 802.11n USB 2.0 Network Adapter

any help,thanks in advance
