i have tried connecting to my wireless router with two different wireless chips now, one of which was supported in bt3. the one supported in bt3 is a d-link wua-1340, the other is a broadcom built in to my laptop. both turn on (meaning light up) when i put "ifconfig wlan# up" into the shell but the NetworkManager still does not display any networks. However i noticed Kismet does display wireless networks, so i attempted to via the shell using the guide here:

unfortunately when i get to step 4 the shell tells me these cards do not support mac addresses...

any recommendations? thank you in advance
