    Default dual internal nic

    hi im new here but i do know a little bit about backtrack and i was wondering how i would be able to run 2 wifi cards. one is for internet the other is to test. but i would like to be able to connect to multiple connections since i have 2 internet providers hooked up at my shop. the only problem wicd is only letting me use 1 card at a time. is there any other way i could do this? im using an atheros 5k and a broadcom 43 series for the 2 cards with seperate antennas on each of them. any ideas are more than welcome.

    thanks

    I've run six wifi cards on one machine once, four internal, two external usb, so I don't think you'll have a problem with two.

    Use the command line and not wicd. Use Google and the forum search facilities to find out how...
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    The Forum Rules, Forum FAQ and the BackTrack Wiki... learn them, love them, live them.
