Not recognized. only my Wlan0 internal Broadcom card is recognized.
Notes: BT4 does not recognize the card upon boot with it preattached or not.
Question: How do I go about installing this Wireless USB network adapter? What drivers? What commands etc.
Please do not ask me to search forums. I have serched these fourms and the internet for over 2 weeks now. I basically found nothing that pertains to "how to make BT4" recognize your wirless network adapter. I am new to Linux, but am learning fast. As you notice the chipset is (bcm43xx) as it is refered to all over the internet.

Can anyone help me and tell me what I need to do to get this Network adapter to work? And doesn't BackTrack 4 beta have the necessary drivers pre installed already?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Broadcom are generally not very well supported.
But that in and of itself is not the end all be all.

MY Dynex Wireless USB adapter is awesome, its drivers are a bit sticky at times, but overall I get a hell of alot better performance and optimized distances than Linksys adapters. This is why I want to use my Dynex. + using my homemade Antenna I have booste my +db levels up by at least +8db.
I can reach my barn accross the pasture alot better.
Is there anything I can do with BT4 to see if it could use or recognize my USB Adapter?
