I have just upgraded my laptop to kernel 2.2.28-r2 and have enabled the ath5k 
drivers for its Aetheros PC wireless card. Using the scripts to activate 
net.wlan0 works fine and the wicd client can see the interface correctly. But 
when I try to activate wlan0 with wicd it repeatedly fails. I still have 
madwifi selected as the wpa-supplicant driver. Are there any hints on tuning 
this, I can't find any by searching?

TIA
-Robin
