    Thanks to all for sharing your valuable ideas and thoughts.
    I appreciate all.

    Thanks hotus for the link to install.
    I installed it from one click installer, all goes fine.
    It also connected to network, but not working. I think there is some conflict between Networkmanager and wicd.

    By multiple profiles, I meant SUMF program (SCPM).

    Of course, you should disable Networkmanager first in order to fully appreciate wicd power (Follow GofBorg steps)

    Addition: to avoid the card from trying to connect to configured network on every boot, choose Manual from the starting options. Furthermore: WICD, WICD, does exactly what I'd like the Networkmanager to do.

    I thought wicd disabled Networkmanager automatically. Well it did on Ubuntu and Gnome when I installed it on my laptops.
