I believe that /etc/init.d/wicd is the actual service. When you choose wicd from the KDE menu you are launching the client.
Yes the device was up, and I started wicd by just clicking on the icon in the kmenu, don't see how that makes much of a difference, but I could try starting it from the terminal.

So as an update, I managed to connect to my network on another machine that was doing the same thing, instead of using the WEP passphrase that I generally use to connect any of my machines to the internet, I found and used one of our WEP keys, and changed the encryption type in the menu to WEP(HEX). Just in case there are any others out there having a similar problem, it's a simple fix, just don't use a passphrase to connect use a key.
With that good news I decided to try getting backtrack and wireless working on my box with the Rosewill card once again, this time no wireless networks are showing. I think I've found the actual problem. I'm using one of the Ralink STA drivers, I believe this card is meant to be run using the rt2860 driver but I can't find a version of that patched for injection. BT4 pre-final seemed to think that the rt2500 worked fine instead. So the question is, could it be the driver?
yadayadayada....05:05.0 Network controller: RaLink RT2760 Wireless 802.11n 1T/2R Cardbusyes i know it says 2760, but every other linux distro i use used the 2860
ra0 Ralink STA ESSID:"" Nickname:"" Mode:Auto Frequency=2.412 GHz Bit Rate=1 Mb/s RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Encryption key:off Link Quality=10/100 Signal level:0 dBm Noise level:-87 dBm Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0 Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0
and then when I try to put the wireless interface up i get this
ifconfig ra0 up SIOCSIFFLAGS: Operation not permitted

I just use NetworkManager now.
But a little searching and i found this
Basically it calls for the installation of b43-fwcutter drivers.

I think it is because BT4 final reverted to older Ralink drivers because of injection problems. And some of the 2860's (like mine) support 5.8Ghz as well as the 2.4Ghz spectrum which is not supported by older Ralink drivers, like the RT73 drivers. I just speculate because my RT 73 now injects w/o a hitch (had problems on BT4 beta), and the RT73 and 2860 are totally different chipsets.
