Slackware and wicd


So, yesterday I was trying to connect slackware to my wifi network, and it worked, but this morning when I booted up and tried to connect, it gave me the Bad Password error. I read about all these .conf files that you have to edit and that there are these programs preinstalled like wpa_supplicant. Im kinda confused on all this and need some help clearing things up, which might also help me connect to my network. I can get a wired connection and my wireless interface is eth1 not wlan0. I am also using wicd as the network manager.

I am assuming that you have double-checked your security settings in wicd and verified that eth1 still shows in the output of ifconfig.

If you were connected before and nothing changed in your computer, try rebooting your router.

I have gotten bad password errors that weren't connected to my machine or my machine's security settings because the router's brains got addled. In fact, I think I need to change out the router (it's happened several times in the past month) but I've been too lazy to do so.

And I thought I was the only one!
