    Default Netgear WPN111 and Bluetooth GBU221WM adapters supported?

    I bought a Netgear WPN111 wireless usb adapter to use with backtrack. Backtrack doesn't recognize it so I'm assuming it doesn't support the adapter. How can I add fix this to make my adapter work with backtrack.

    Also same issue with a Bluetooth USB Adapter I bought. Model: GBU221WM


    Thanks.

    Do your USB ports work??? I would start there if two adaptors don't work. Type

    Code:
    lspci
    and post the results and next time i'm here il take a look If USB doesn't work you may have to reconfigure or upgrade your kernel or install drivers. You can find instructions on this site.

    OK I can see your USB device

    00:02.0 USB Controller: ALi Corporation USB 1.1 Controller (rev 03)

    What happens when you plug the adaptor in??? Any lights?

    You could try updating libusb

    Code:
    slapt-get --install libusb-0.1.12-i486-1

    The Bluetooth device doesn't have any lights and the wireless usb adapter doesn't light up unless it's broadcasting. But nothing noticeable happens. I try to use tools associated with the adapters and it says not detected.

    Sorry for all the questions but its hard to get my head around what your problem is.

    Is your network card connecting to networks ???
    wireless usb adapter doesn't light up unless it's broadcasting.
    Would suggest that your card is firing up? Oh and I would put this post in the newb section I would hardly call it a Specialist Topic

    I dont mind the questions. I want to get this fixed. I was reading in another post and I did a hcitool scan and it discovered my Bluetooth device. Although I couldn't get it to do anything but find my phone and timeout everytime I tried to do something. But I guess that's another problem all togeather.

    I also just updated my libusb
    Code:
    bt ~ # slapt-get --install libusb-0.1.12-i486-1
    Reading Package Lists... Done
    libusb is up to date.
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
    
    Done
    Let's focus on the wireless adapter now. It works just fine in windows of course. Just doesn't in BT.

    Code:
    bt ~ # ifconfig rausb0 up
    rausb0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
    bt ~ # hcitool hci00 up
    bt ~ # hcitool hci0 scan
    bt ~ #

    Your card wont work in backtrack unless you install drivers onto backtrack and then you still won't be able to inject. To get it working in bt you will have to install ndiswrapper and use the windows driver.

    and

    bt ~ # hcitool hci00 up
    bt ~ # hcitool hci0 scan

    Its working turn your bluetooth on your phone on and you should see your phones MAC.
