    wicd disconnects wifi when scanning

    Hallo,

    I have an hp compaq 6720s laptop dualboot vista/ubuntu lucyd.

    My wireless card is Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Network Connection (rev 02), controlled by wicd 1.7.0 (gnome network manager connects/disconects the net continuously).

    The problem is, any time I do a scanning with wicd or from command line to see the wifi nets around, my wireless is disconnected, then it connects again because is set to automatic reconnection.

    Could I fix this behaviour?

    Thanks in advance

    Generally yes, mine does this also, I dont think you can connect to a network and scan at the same time with Wicd, the stock network manager just had a refresh button I think. You could just unclick auto connect if you don't want it to connect back again
    If you need help, i'm always on Google+

    Just because you have more beans than I, it does not mean you know more.

    So, the conclusion is wicd cannot mantain wifi connection when scanning?. I don't think this is the desirable behaviour. Perhaps I'll report it as a bug in wicd.

    Wicd also has a refresh button, anytime I click on refresh, wicd disconnects wifi.

    Regards
