I have introduce a friends to backtrack3final... he is running it from a bootable iso disk on his desktop... its been a long time since i have had driver problems and i dont remember the steps to get all the info needed to fix this problem... right now the only info i have for you guys is his lspci hardware list... I will give more info on the problem... sorry for the lack of info... I never had this problem with a desktop before... can this be fixed with ndiswrapper? he would need the driver for the Ethernet controller?
