I'm running Debian Lenny on a Toshiba A200 notebook:
So I installed linux-image 2.6.32 from the Debian backports repository:
This gives me, and loads the driver necessary for my wireless chipset.
and: # ifconfig wlan0 up reports success. (# echo $? returns 0)
So not surprisingly wicd finds no wireless networks. What have I missed? (wireless switch under notebook is on!)

I removed a reference to wlan0 from /etc/net/interfaces. wicd now finds wireless networks. Problem solved.
