I’m currently trying out a BBB rev c with debian in order to gain some familiarity with the system. I have a WiFi module I purchased from Adafruit (http://www.adafruit.com/products/1030) plugged in and it is working. I have configured it via wpa_supplicant.conf and interfaces, it is connected to my network, and I am able to pull up an Apache page with it, ssh sessions, etc. It is wlan0.
However, wicd-curses doesn’t show any available networks. It should be able to see about 10 networks in the area but wicd-curses reports that it can’t find any. Is wicd failing to use a correct driver or something?
