I just got my Linksys WRT54GL delivered today and set it up to connect to a pppoe connection.
The wired connection works as advertised (beware, if your pc/laptop is already configured 
with a static ip address, then you won't be able to connect using - I 
had to stick the Hardy live CD in and then it connected!!??).

Anyway, I now want to be able to set up my Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop to connect to the 
router. I installed wicd and removed KNetworkManager and KWlan, but wicd says that there 
are no wireless connections available.

I really am completely new to wireless and don't really know where to start.

Do I have to do anything special to the router first?
And how do I get a 'tray icon' for wicd to appear?
