    Question Wireless Not Working

    I have a integrated wireless 802.11g and it won't work with backtrack. Can link me to some drivers the supports linux other than ndiswrapper. I want to master a lot of tools that ndiswrapper doesn't support.

    It would help if you told us which card & chipset you have, otherwise we cannot really point you anywhere.

    AFAIK that chipset is only supported through ndiswrapper, you'd be better off getting a well-supported card.

    Thanks for your help. One more thing. Can you link me to ndiswrapper because I have never used it. And I am new to Linux.
