I am using WEP shared/Restricted
I sometimes find (and this is just in Slackware, no other distros needed) that WICD seems to be out of sync with iwconfig (wheras I always assumed that WICD was basically a graphical front end for iwconfig and other similar utilities). So the passphrase in WICD is set to "XXXYYY" but if I type iwconfig at a console I get output which suggests that the passphrase is "yyyxxx". I have found that by manually setting the iwconfig key (
iwconfig wlan0 key XXXYYY
if I remember corrcetly) to match the WICD passphrase.
