    Default need help with my network devices

    hey everyone, i just installed backtrack 3 fully on my laptop (a z60t lenovo) and i connected to my wifi network it worked for about six hours before it died. i then decided to use the Ethernet cable and the the light on my ethernet port went on but once again nothing as far as connectivity was concerned.

    i know the problem is with backtrack because when i booted into my windows xp partition and my openSuSe 10.3 both connections were working perfectly. if anyone knows what the problem could be please let me know. i'll include a copy of my ifconfig dump if that's needed.

    It would help if you could just give us the lspci output.
