    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Using backtrack for the first time is like being 10 years old again with the keys to a Ferrari.

    Meh, why?

    Why not just use the network manager.

    Open a terminal:

    /etc/init.d/NetworkManager start

    This will light the green applet in the dock and simplify this entire process instead of using some crazy script.

    Too easy.

    I say do it all from the command line, as described on the wiki. If you can't manage to perform a basic task like configuring your network from the command line, you probably shouldn't be using BackTrack

    Or even better, write your own network interface driver, IP stack, DHCP client and DNS resolver and use those to connect to the Internet. That's the way a real hacker would do it - none of this namby pamby use of pre written software!
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    The Forum Rules, Forum FAQ and the BackTrack Wiki... learn them, love them, live them.

    Yeah muts and the other dev's made and entire linux distribution themselves,
    none of this namby pamby junk.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
    ForumRules
    ForumFAQ
    If you are new to Back|Track
    Back|Track Wiki
    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.

    I think the problem might be that when bt4 boots it says how to start networking, but doesn't explain about wireless. Initially I couldn't figure out why my wireless/networkmanager wasn't running either Took me half a sec to figure out I needed to manually start networkmanger but for a noob ehhhh

    Just my $.02.. Maybe another info line at bootup would help?
