  • It looks like an XY problem. You have a problem with your wireless adapter. It is unlikely that wicd will solve it. Please edit your question and add output of lspci -knn | grep Net -A3; rfkill list terminal command.

  • 99,9% chances WICD is NOT the solution.

I ended up using WICD with the help of "How to set up an ethernet and wireless network using /etc/network/interfaces" https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WICD The Boss liked the friendly menus.
