I'm using Backtrack 5, R3 and an Alfa AWUS036NHR adaptor. It seems to work fine, and I can put it to monitor mode and I've succesfully used (e.g.) Reaver a few times. However, I can't seem to connect to (encrypted) wireless networks, at least using Wicd. I've enabled encryption in my network's properties, tried both PSK and Pass Phrase, and I'm sure it's the right password, but it always returns a 'Bad Password' error. I'm using the wext wpa supplicant driver (as recommended).
Many of the solutions in threads covering the same problem simply cause Wicd to stop interacting with my adaptor and not show networks at all anymore, so I'm running out of ideas. Any assistance would be appreciated!
Think like a criminal and act as a professional.
I get this error as well sometimes. Is it possible to use a different networkmanager? If yes, which do you recommend?
What exactly was running it virtually going to do to fix the drivers issue?
apt-get install -y NHR_actually_connect_to_a_network
getting tired of this card quick.
have you tried using wep encryption?..Try it..If it works we might be looking at a possible bug with WPA-WPA2, wicd and rtl8188RU chipset..
Also you might want to download BT5r1 and see if wpa-wpa2 works...
try it and post.
Try again what you did (restarting the router) . See if it works again..Also reboot the machine.
Please post your wifi card, chipset and BT5 version used (r1, r2, r3 and .ISO, VM, USB)
Thanx for the update.
