OK.

Lets do from beginning.
Please log into your wireless router and turn off ANY Wireless Security.
Change wireless channel from 13 to 4.
Then find section with DHCP settings, make sure it DHCP server is enabled.

Now you do not need any passwords:

sudo ifdown eth1
sudo iwconfig eth1 mode managed essid A2 channel 4
sudo ifup eth1

We will enable Wireless Security later.
Thank you.

You have wicd still in memory and it's doing some thing.
I have never use it, so I can't help you with it.

Try to connect with it, but before do:

sudo iwconfig eth1 mode managed essid A2 channel 4

and then "iwconfig eth1", it should show: eth1 unassociated ESSID:"A2".

Then try to connect with wicd.

OK, can you start wicd manager GUI? It should be "wicd-client" (from their FAQ)

Look attached image.

If yes, you can chose your network there.

Can you start wicd GUI (graphical user interface)? It should have an icon in system tray.

Or try to type in terminal "wicd-client"

Good. Now do you see in the list of wireless stations your "A2"?

And if it is there, connect to it.

Can you explain what does mean "wicd unable to go wireless with A2"?

You can't find "A2" in the list?
You unable to press button "connect"?

I was able to see A2 and the "connect" button on the list. After I unplugged the cable and pressed the connect button, it took a long time to validating authentication....... and then it said "not connected"
