    So.. I got the smc card
    backtrack.offensive-security . com/index . php/HCL:Wireless

    Well i booted up back track 3 and i click on the wireless and it said no card found!

    i got SMC SMCWPCI-G
    i even checked on linux-wless.passys . nl
    and it said it will work..

    Use the command iwconfig to list all recognized wireless devices, you should find your card listed as it indeed seems to be supported. As the card has an Atheros chipset it will utilize the great madwifi driver, just read up on the appropriate commands to use with this driver and you should be fine.

    Is the card working in windows?

    Wonder if its not installed (physically) properly???
    Its just a hobby that I picked up in the lobby...

    Do a lspci and see if it shows up there.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    If it does show up on lspci, you might try using 'dmesg' to see what, if any reaction the card's presence invoked--dmesg should let you know if backtrack tried to load any drivers, and if so which, whether or not it succeeded, and what the interface is named.
