    Running Antix 15 and getting back into it after a year or so out. But can’t get the wifi to work. Dongle I know is ok and shows up in lsusb.
    Using ROXterm Network Interfaces I see hardware interfaces eth0 & wlan1 and under Logical interfaces I see wlan0.
    Wicd tells me WiFi is not connected and says no networks found.
    Do I somehow need to patch wlan0 to wlan1?

    Thanks Caprea for response. This is from my Win10 machine as I can’t get the Antix machine connected 🙂
    I’ll rig up an ethernet connection tomorrow and I’ll hopefully then be able to do do a copy/paste on the various terminal commands you’ve suggested.

    Read again your post and maybe its enough to set wlan0 to wlan1 in preferences of wicd, but I think you tried this alreday.

    You are right, setting wlan0 to wlan1 sorted it. I’d not noticed that little arrow in wicd that gives the Preferences option.
    Many thanks
