    Hello,
    I just recently did a harddrive install on a IBM Thinkpad r31 lappy.

    iwconfig gets the following error

    l0 no wireless extentions

    eth0 no wireless extentions

    What am I doing wrong?

    My card is a NL-2511CD PLUS EXT2 (prizm chipset) I used it with Auditor just fine.




    Thanks

    It apears that backtrack 3 is not detecting my PCMCIA controller. Auditor on a live cd does, How can Import those settings or drivers to work in backtrack?

    Try this.

    modprobe hostap_cs

    Cant help with the automatic detection issue, I run into the same thing from time to time on a T-40 and just work around it by doing it manually or scripting it.

    Default That works

    Now I can see 802.11 cards.

    Not sure why it works but it does... too bad I can automate that..

    Thanks

    I tried to figure out what hostap_cs does, but the closest I could get was a description of the package hostap_utils which is utility programs for Host AP driver for Prism chipsets (which is what you have).

    And I'm sure you could automate it somehow with a few lines of code, or the right line in the right config-file. I'm sorry I can't give you more to go on here, but I can tell you that it can be done somehow
