Hello,
first you need to run "wicd --wireless --list-networks" (or, in short form, "wicd-cli -y -l") to get the ID of the network:

$ wicd-cli -y -l
# BSSID Channel ESSID
0 00:18:4D:E0:71:9E 1 PALEINO
1 00:21:63:BD:7E:6D 1 Vodafone-10203589
2 00:1D:6A:87:4A:1D 6 Alice-76638493
3 00:03:6F:E3:43:E0 6 FASTWEB-1-00036FE343D8
4 00:03:6F:E3:43:E2 6 <hidden>
5 00:03:6F:E3:43:E1 6 <hidden>

Then you can use "wicd -y -n ID <command>" (where ID is one of the #s above).

Hope this helps,
David
