I have created a bootable usb flash with backtrack 3 and wireless connection works fine. But i cannot start a wired internet connection. I am connecting the wire on the rj45 port but there is no internet. I have to do something else to have wired internet?
thank you in advance
well, you could always try the normal command "dhcpcd"

Yes, as already stated........look up the term "DHCP" and see how it works.
(dhcpcd is the client daemon - it will request the "connection details" from your dhcp server (probably your home DLS/Cable router?)
The reason for what you are describing is that most systems will attempt to contact a dhcp server during boot. Otherwise, at a later point, you will have to instigate the contact yourself, via dhcpcd. (Or dhclient, or pump, etc, but that's another story for a rainy day;))
This is normal.
This is all *very* basic stuff. You really should consider reading up on networking in general before even attempting to play around with networks!:eek:
thanks, I appreciate your help
type dhcpcd eth0 then press enter or it could be eth1
I am having the same problem :(
On BT3beta I could type:
And it would work fine, but now with BT3 the above commands do not work.
I have tried "dhcpcd eth0" and "dhcpcd eth1" and neither work.
