Hope someone can help me relatively soon. I have been having a similar issue.
Last night everything was working perfectly fine. This morning when I booted up BT5, wicd could not locate any wireless networks. I have tried just about everything I can think of.
dmesg does not bring up any issue with my wifi card. I am using a Broadcom Corporation BCM4311
The output of ifconfig is (for wlan0):
Link encap: ethernet HWaddr 00:19:38:24:26:c9
UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 METRIC:1
RX packets:0 erroors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 erroors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)
The output of iwconfig is:
IEEE 802.11bg ESSID
Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=20 dBm
Retry long limit:7 RTS thr
ff Frament thr
I have run ifconfig wlan0 up multiple times. I have tried running 'dpkg-reconfigure wicd' and 'update-rc.d wicd defaults' to set it back to defaults.
I am wondering if maybe I have something blacklisted by mistake and it is interfering, yet I am not too familiar with /etc/modprobe.d
wicd-gtk displays no errors that I can see. Anybody have any other tips? It was fine last night....a simple shut down screwed this up..
