Relief for (some) Broadcom Wireless Users (soon) : BackTrack Linux – Penetration Testing Distribution

Relief for (some) Broadcom Wireless Users (soon)

Kernel 2.6.34 (RC2 for now) delivers fixed Broadcom b43 drivers, and allows injection with 4315 and 4312 chipsets. This kernel is currently in testing, and should be out of RC stages in a couple of months. As of now, it seems that the future transition of BackTrack to this kernel will bring a significant amount of improvements, as well as a more mature mac80211 stack.

For anyone interested in testing this “out-of-band” kernel – we will soon post instructions on how to do this.

In other news – congratulations are in order to Offensive Security for becoming GSA certified !
