    Question Is intel wifi link 5100 network card compatible with Backtrack4

    Is intel wifi link 5100 network card compatible with Backtrack4, I tried the Toshiba Qosmio x300 with backtrack 3 and it wasn't supported yet, I'm currently downloading the new iso and I just wanted to know if it was possible to sniff WPA2 network with it yet!

    Best to start with a search using your favourite search engine...then perhaps take a look at the Aircrack supported cards page.

    Google is your friend. I would suggest you search it before you ask it, because you can find your answer in 2 minutes if you try hard enough. People on this forum like to help people who try to help themselves.

    (Also if you don't like Google try: Bing, Cuil, Dogpile, Jeeves, or anything else on this list: The Search Engine List)

    Darn, you guys beat me to it :P

    Common Knowledge: Username, "root". Password, "toor". "startx" gives you a GUI, and "fix-vesa" will fix BT if you have no GUI. Start networking with "/etc/init.d/networking start" and check your IP settings with "ifconfig -a". "dhclient" will automatically use DHCP for your IP. Google is your friend.

    I have founbd lots of info on aircrack wiki about compatibility regarding intel 5100 bgn but all of them talk about some changes to be made on the linux kernel .26,27... none of them talking about the kernel used on bt4 which is .29, right? So my question is if I need to do the same changes on the tuts when it comes to the kernel or is the kernel on bt4 already patched and I just need to do the rest of the stuff? eg patching mac802, etc...

    thank you sirs..

    Smile Having trouble to detect my link 5100 a/g/n on my sony vaio fw560f with BackTrack 4?

    hi!! there:

    I had been following many procedures and knowing information about things that had to do with kernels. At the beginning i was using the BT3 without being successful cuz of an issue with the drivers kernels and many more being incompatible with my card so i advanced to download BT4 and im not sure about it but i'm in the same phrase "without being successful", so i will appreciate if i could received some help from you all please. (i had been pulling my hair to get this damn card working) .


    When i type the command:

    iwconfig
    lo no wireless extensions.

    eth0 no wireless extensions

    This is what i get so it seems it is incompatible but for shure with this installation of some drivers and by compiling them i will be successful of course if this is what i think.

    ifconfig
    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0c:29:7f:bd:e4
    UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
    RX packets:1118 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0

    collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
    RX bytes:1093641 (1.0 MB) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)
    Interrupt:19 Base address:0x2000

    lo Link encap:Local Loopback
    inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
    UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1

    TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
    collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
    RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)



    That's more less the information i can provide plus here u make an entrance "JSChiwal" cuz i had been following ur procedure to receive some type of help.
