Most problematic Networking Application I've seen in decades. Never had any problems with Networking until this app was installed. It's been completely removed & I still have issues.
Much better than the default network manager!
breaks everything on LM 17.2 after a restart, other than that it works extremely well.
It worked far better than the default network manager on my older notebook. Even let me change the name of the wireless adapter to what the system changed it to.
I prefer it over Network manager, but seems to be made more difficult to install in place of NM with each new upgrade.
Had a very hard time getting it to work. First it was a DBUS problem then a daemon problem and finally it wouldn't let me view wireless networks. This thing is very troublesome, but i had to use it in order for my wireless adapter to work. Had to get a few patches and now it works, but it doesn't work all too great. How about someone release a version that doesn't have bugs out the butt.
great network manager
Locks up mint when I leave my usual network. I thought the default manager doesn't work but actually I just have to wait for it to populate the list and then scroll the mouse over the icon in the panel.
Wow, this thing is buggy; it locks up mint whenever I try to connect to a wireless network.
Network Manager mess with wpa_supplicant and my wifi card: WICD resolve problems out of the box.
It is working great!
does this allow net conection sharing?
Best one out there
The default network manager freezed my computer. Wicd is my hero.
After installing wicd and completely removing network manager my netbook is working wireless !
I had trouble with the default network applet, but wicd fixed my wireless issues.
simple and easy to use but i prefer the default network manager
wicd worked like a charm when Network Manager, the default wirless app for Mint 10 KDE kept nagging for "secret for.." password prompts with and without kwallet and other forum suggestions. Also, I thought my video streaming problem was with Flash but no wicd clearned up that god awful buffering situation too. Thanks for making Linux wifi accessible for newbies like me wicd maintaners.
