Could you help me I'm trying to install linux-backports-modules-jaunty-generic but I cannot find the right repository or the package itself, it is to solve one problem in my wicd connection.

Your distro is listed as Debian, but linux-backports-modules-jaunty-generic sounds like an ubuntu thing.

Ubuntu's "Jaunty" dated from 2009, was discontinued some time ago, and is no longer supported. There may not be any repositories for the packages you are looking for.

Try installing a newer version: 10.04 is the current "Long term support" version, 11.04 is "current".

This will need to be a clean, new install, so backup your personal files first.

Also, installing the modules aone will not solve any problem, you also need the appropriate kernel for those specific modules.

Ok I'll specify better, my distro is Debian Squeeze and I'm having a problem, my wireless card do not connect on weak signals lower than 50%. Than I look for on internet and I found it, if there is another solution please reply.

Debian uses a newer kernel than Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty), so it should work out of the box with that. May be you want to try the kernel from squeeze's backports repository, the ones from Ubuntu's kernel will definitely not work.
