    Default Can someone tell me if Backtrack and Packard Bell Dot work together?

    Hi to all!
    I'm intentioned to buy this netbook
    DOT_F2110.AC/022 - LU.BCC0C.003 - dot M/A - platform_sjm11_yk - Notebook
    Packard Bell DOT_F2110.AC/022

    Will Backtrack work with it? I want to install it to a pendrive

    And will Aircrack work, too?
    The wireless card should be Atheros

    Anyone has experience with this netbook?

    why dont you test it out and see? if it works post the specs and say what works or not. if it doesnt work, post as well and we can try and get it working.

    I have a dell with a broadcom card, that works in every linux distro but this one. It even works in partition magic out of the box. But Im happy it didnt cause it forced me to buy an exterior usb card with antenna, and it opens you up to so much more wireless traffic, then an internal. In windows my internal card maybe see's 4-5 networks at a given time. With my ALFA 36h I see 15-20 AP's

    So IMO, if you like the laptop, buy it, cause you should then fork out the $40 to get a good usb wifi card, and have some real fun.

    Because I WANT to buy it, but before to buy it I'd need to know if it BackTrack and in special way Aircrack will work with it

    Well l have a Packard Bell Easynote which comes with Broadcom and the Atheros wifi chip and it works perfectly with BT4-FINAL USB. So, the DOT might be similar.

    Oh, never mind!
    When I'll buy it, I'll post if it works or not!
    However, searching and reading, it should!

    Ok... if someone is interested, I bought the netbook, and BackTrack works, and in special way Aircrack, I succesfully cracked the password of my router!
    Gerix doesn't work, though: when I scan for networks, it completely freezes! AZZZ!!!
