Can wicd scan channels 1 to 13?
I just installed VectorLinux on an old Thinkpad T21. It picked up my Atheros card and wicd detected and connected to my WiFi net very smoothly (hidden SSID, WPA/PSK).
However, it completely failed to find the next net I wanted to use (also hidden SSID, WPA/PSK).
The second net is very similar to the first but while the first is on channel 1, the second is on 12 or 13 (these are legal in Europe). When I checked wireless-settings.conf I found channel = 1.
My question is: Am I right - wicd is only looking on channel 1? How can I get the machine to easily connect to both nets? Hopefully there's some obscure wicd/wireless-settings.conf setting I can use? Or do I need to set up something to stop/re-config/re-start wicd maybe??
