    Default Intel wireless 3945abg card not detected!

    Hi there,

    here is my problem : my wireless card is not detected with backtrack v2.
    the command ifconfig -a only shows "lo", my lan card doesn't seem to be detected either.
    however, the card seems to be loaded (it appears with lsmod). I tried to run modprobe ipw3945, but it didn't change anything.
    Please help me!

    Did you install intel drivers for the card?

    I had problem with mine too, but after I installed drivers it's working fine.

    Check this out should be explained everything in detail:

    ipw3945.sourceforge.net

    In order to use the Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection driver for Linux you will need the following:

    1.The binary microcode image
    2.The binary user space regulatory daemon
    3The ieee80211 subsystem version 1.1.11 or newer
    4.Linux kernel 2.6.13 or newer

    Default ipw 3945 drivers come with BT 2

    The drivers are already included. Even is you are really lazy there is a nice little shortcut posted in the ->backtrack->wireless->misc menu. It says IPW3945. When you click it should load the drivers and start your card. Then
    Code:
    ifconfig
    and you should see the card. Then
    Code:
    iwconfig
    to manually adjust it to the AP or
    Code:
    sudo wlassitant
    to use a GUI.
