A few days ago, I have changed ESSID for my Access point.
topic, I have uninstalled wicd 126.96.36.199 by using slackpkg and reinstall it with new version (188.8.131.52) from source code (moved ~/.wicd and /etc/wicd to another location). But, the OLD ESSID still shows up in wicd network manager and I cannot connect to it. The error message is "Cannot obtain IP address"
. (I am sure about encryption type and Preshared key).
On the other hand, "iwlist wlan0 scan
" still show the NEW ESSID normally, but I always get "wlan0 no private ioctls."
when try connecting to it from command line:
iwconfig wlan0 essid "MY_ESSID"
iwpriv wlan0 set AuthMode=WPAPSK
I completly deleted the OLD ESSID from /etc/wicd/wireless-settings.conf.
How can I get the new ESSID in wicd network manager window?
