Enable wireless connection in Kubuntu Intrepid 8.10

After I upgraded to Kubuntu Intrepid, knetwork-manager can detect wireless, and it’s activated, but it can never connect to the network.

After browsing through, I decided to try WICD, to install in Kubuntu, follow the instruction given in this page.

After installation, quit knetwork-manager, and run from konsole “wicd-client&”, this will run the tray application. click the tray icon to see the wireless networks, and click “connect”. It works perfectly fine for me.
