    Question Backtrack 3 final wireless cable connection issue

    Specs Of PC:
    OS 1: Vista <--primary
    OS 2: Backtrack 3 <--secondary
    Network Adapter 1: Atheros AR5B91 Wirelessnet work adapter
    Network Adapter 2: Generic Marvell Yukon 88E8071 based Ethernet Controller
    Modem: Netgear CG814WG
    PC: Acer Aspire 5735

    Problem:

    in backtrack 3, i open up the konsole and type "ifconfig" and it returns the normal stuff


    but when i type "iwconfog" i think thats it...it returns the error: "no wireless extentions"

    when i try to run Kwlan it runs but nothing works. when i try to open the handbook for it it asks me to create one.

    and when i open the wireless assistance thing it makes a sound that sounds like glass breaking and brings up an error when i click ok it goes away back the the desktop...any ideas? i know the login for the connection i need to access its a home account but not the IP i will have to login to my dads PC and get the IP...do i need the routers IP? or which IP do i need and how do i get it?

    Have you ensured that your wireless device is in managed mode and have you tried to connect using the command line?

    Thumbs down

    I've got an AR5B91 as well but can't find the drivers. Are you sure you have the drivers?

    Hello Nyk0n.

    I'd like to know how you managed your Marvell Yukon Ethernet Controller if you did.
    Because there is many tools to manage wireless device and connection.
    but i don't sea any tools for Ethernet device.
    -> I've got a similar device (Marvell Yukon 88E8036)

    Thank you.
