Having trouble getting wireless networks to show up in wicd. Everything appears to be working correctly.

Dmesg shows iwlwifi is loaded with the correct firmware.

Code:

# dmesg | grep iwl

ifconfig shows the device is present.

Not sure what is wrong here. Read the gentoo iwlwifi wiki several times but still have not been able see any wifi networks in wicd. Below is my emerge --info.

Well I tried using the wpa_supplicant gui and was able to successfully connect to a wifi network. I'll keep looking into the wicd issue. At this point I think this is an issue with wicd and not the kernel.

wicd parses iwconfig output, which in turn requires support for emulating the legacy wireless extensions in the kernel (CONFIG_CFG80211_WEXT).
