    Default AWUS036H and R2

    So I purchased the AWUS036H from Amazon and it arrived yesterday.

    I got around to trying this out late, so, I expect I could have missed something.

    Here are the steps I did (I am running Backtrack 4 R2 on this laptop BTW);

    1. I first disabled the built in wireless (Broadcom) on the Dell E6400.
    2. I plug in the USB cable.
    3. I run ifconfig wlan0 up.
    4. The card appears when I run ifconfig. So I know that part is at least working.
    5. I run dhclient wlan0
    6. Unfortunately that timed out. I could lift the laptop and touch the router I am trying to get it to see (just in case someone had that thought... lol)


    I do a little late night Googling and tried these steps as well....
    I ran rmmod rtl8187 and then ran modprobe r8187.
    I ran through steps 3 through 5 and ended with the same results in step 6.
    I even tried rmmod r8187 to try modprobe rtl8187 and still the same thing happened (I ran through steps 3 through 5 and ended with the same results in step 6.)
    Tonight I was going to do a deeper dive back into it.

    If there are any other things I can try or missed, any help would be appreciated.

    Yep, you should check out WICD.

    There is also a command called iwconfig

    No go on and do some research, I think you'll be able to find something useful with the info given above.

    I knew I was gonna get a little snarkiness.

    I know about iwconfig and WICD. I don't know them as well as a lot of others here might. I will take this opportunity to learn those two a bit better though.

    I was able to find the solution to my problem (approximately 30 minutes after I initially posted this go figure).
