    Default Help installing 3945 driver in Back Track 3

    Hi, newbie here. I have managed the following so far. Put BT3 on a 1G USB drive. Boots into BT3 normally. Now here is my problem, I have a laptop that uses the troublesome Intel 3945. I have downloaded the proper driver 'ipwraw-ng2.0.0-10072007.tar.tar' and saved in on a cd-r. My question is, how can I unzip and install this properly WHILE I AM IN BT3? PLEASE GIVE STEP BY STEP COMMANDS. Thanx in advance all your help.

    The intel ipw3945 is already loaded on BT3. Along with the ipwraw modules.

    I use the command:
    modprobe -r iwl3945 (this will unload iwl3945)
    modprobe ipwraw (this will load ipwraw for packet injection)

    once you get done with that then do
    modprobe -r ipwraw (to unload packet injection)
    modprobe iwl3945 (to load the original mod)

    also in case you didnt know you cant surf the internet while in monitor mode.
    Let me know if you get it working.

    The command provided by Musashi does the job, however, I can't get injection and data increasing at all with LiveCD Backtrack 3.

    just tested this on my brothers asus laptop, and it worked great, only had time to test it with spoonwep2 and spoonwpa, both working.

    used this to get the card to inject
    modprobe -r iwl3945 && modprobe ipwraw

    and then this to reset card back to normal
    modprobe -r ipwraw && modprobe iwl3945

    Also, if cli isnt your style spoondrv will provide a gui for this task. (Though if cli isnt your style backtrack probably isnt for you anyway )

    i find that wireless assistant is borked, using dhcp for me = fail. I had to manually configure my wireless using the wlassistant. but you can also use the command interface with iwconfig. im not to sure about using those commands though.

    What happens when u type:

    Code:
    iwconfig <your interface> essid <your ap name>
    iwconfig <your interface> key  <enter your key>       (only if u use encryption)
    dhclient <your interface>
    <terminal86>

    * post a very elementary question to a forum where advanced technical questions are expected, or vice-versa
    * cross-post to too many different newsgroups
