Dell Latitude D620/D630
I have been able to successfully install BT4 prefinal on both a d620 and a d630, both have dual wifi cards and 3 gig ram. Both wifi cards are successfully detected and operate properly, able to inject. Other than following the instructions in the "up and running with backtrack prefinal", I have ran into no issues so far on either laptop. Both were live cd boots followed by local harddrive installs.
On a further note I am also able to boot to usb with persistant changes on bt3 with both models and without persistant changes on usb bt4 pre.
I have not attempted persistant boot on usb yet for bt4 but should have time this weekend.
I have a D630 that I boot BT4 off a persistent USB drive. But it does not like my Broadcom 1395. Which cards do you have in yours and how do you have dual internal wlan's?
I don't think a 802.11b/g card counts as two cards.... ;)
Actually pulling the keyboard off a D620 there's a second mini-pci slot for a wwan card. I guess you could throw a second wifi card in the slot. Not too sure how bad the antenna's will screw up the card though.
Well I'll be damned. I just got in my spare Broadcom 1390 (bought for $.99) and threw it in the wwan slot in a spare D630 we have here and it worked great. Nice to learn something new everyday.
That is exactly what I did, putting a 2nd card in the spare slot. I noticed that with the antenna's that ran there stock i only get about 50 to 75% of the reception in comparison to the main card, but it works nonetheless and I am sure i could modify it further if it starts to bug me.
Normally my setup is to use the 2nd card (weaker) to connect to the internet while i run kismet (or otherwise) on the stronger card, but both seem able to inject so it really doesn't matter.
I will open up my PC when I get off work and get the exact model of both cards and post here later tonight. Is there any other relevant information you would like me to post?
