    wicd works flawlessly for me with one exception
    I don’t know what speed it is reporting-on.
    It doesn’t correspond to what I think the actual
    download speed really is.

    I don’t think it’s a units problem.

    its a different measure. I think one is measuring your speed from your router to the outside world, and the wicd is between your pc and router.

    Looks reasonable if you have one of the better wireless units.

    Thanks for your comments, DO.

    Most of my electronics are at probably a decade or so old.
    But I’m paying for 50 Mbps and my laptop is situated at
    about the half-power point away from the router.
    Verizon FiOS in the neighborhood is a lot higher than 50 Mbps
    for those willing to pay.

    Your hypothesis fits the possibilities.

    I did replace the wifi unit in the laptop with a $20 unit
    from Dell once, hoping for better performance, but there
    was no change in performance.

    Have you tried ceni instead of wicd? It *might* make a difference.

    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

    Hello, anti.

    I haven’t tried ceni.
    Also, not disappointed with wicd, quite the contrary.
    I’m really pleased with all of antiX 17, once I got xfce4 and all my desktop toys working.

    Made an 854 Mb snapshot yesterday.
    Thought I would start over with base iso rather than full iso and see how small I can make my antiX 17.

    -Regards.
