    Default another nooB looking for help

    good evening all. this is my 1st post since i have just discovered this forum. Seems to be a wealth of knowledge. i have just downloaded BT3 and id like to see if i can crack the WEP key on my home wireless network .

    i am unsure whether my USB wireless card is compatible. i have checked the sticky thread for compatible cards and my card is in the "unknown" category
    its a Cnet CWD-854 USB adapter

    when i boot BT3 and type iwconfig i get:

    lo no wireless extensions.

    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    rausb0 RT73 WLAN
    Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:113
    Rx invalid nwid:0 invalid crypt:0 invalid misc:0

    Can someone tell me from the above if my card is compatible

    All opinions/comments welcome

    cheers
