WPA2 connection - help needed
new to BackTrack and these forums so "Hello" first of all. Look forward to spending most of my time around here!!
I am having trouble setting up a wireless network using BackTrack 2. I am booting from CD and have my internal wireless card, Intel Pro 2200BG on eth0 and my Edimax EW-7318USG on rausb0.
I need to set up a connection to the internet first, so I can obtain the new rt73 drivers by following instructions on Aircrack-ng Site for my Edimax EW7318USG adaptor.
My main PC's wireless connection is set up to use WPA-PSK encryption and WPA-PSK version I am using is WPA2.
Can anyone help with details on how I can setup a connection.
Welcome to the forums!

The wiki says that at least one of your cards works with aircrack-ng
so it stands to reason that if aircrack works you should be able to connect to the internet and download a driver so.... I am not sure I follow you to well.
I have read through the links provided and do not know how to set up my wireless connection. Can anyone help?
My wireless USB (Edimax EW-7318USG) is on rausb0 - how do I set this up to connect to the internet? My router is using WPA2 encryption.
thanks for any help
can anyone help me with this?
Ideally, I want my Intel Pro 2200BG to access the internet and my Edimax EW-7318USG to switch between internet and monitor mode when necessary.
Everything you need should be located right in this thread. Read all the way through, there's a section on connecting to wireless networks using both WEP and WPA.
will try again reading through that thread, I saw that earlier but was still having difficulty. i'll post back results when i try again.
We might be able to help you better if you say WHICH part of the instructions you're having trouble with, don't understand, or isn't working for you.
this is what I have done step by step and still cannot connect to internet:-
iwconfig (OK, my wireless USB is on rausb0)
ifconfig rausb0 up
iwconfig rausb0 ap xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
dhcpcd rausb0 (IP address assigned fine)
I have a WPA2 secure connection so I do the following:
nano wpa_supplicant.conf (which contains the following.....)
wpa_supplicant -D ?????? -i rausb0 -c wpa_supplicant.conf
not sure which to use in the ???? bit above - please advise.
built-in card = IntelPro 2200BG and USB Wireless is an Edimax-EW7318USG
any ideas fellow forumers?
