    Default BT3 won't connect to network

    Hi I have just got an alfa 500mW usb adapter and I'm testing it out with BT3 final on my laptop. I have managed to crack the wep key on my wireless router but can not connect to the network. It shows up in the wireless assistant but when I try to connect (tried with automatic [dhcp] and manual) it fails to connect. I have tried this from my laptop and my desktop and from the command line:
    Code:
    ifconfig
    shows the device
    Code:
    iwlist scan
    shows the network (and two of the neighbours)
    Code:
    iwconfig wlan0 essid "MYESSID"
    appears to work ok but,
    Code:
    dhcpcd wlan0
    causes the icon in the system tray to show the adapter as disabled.

    The adapter is obviously working and I hope this is a silly question I have so far been unable to view any internet via wireless or even ping anything.
    can any1 help
    thx

    I dont have this card, but try this to reset your settings.

    Code:
    airmon-ng stop wlan0
    ifconfig wlan0 down
    macchanger --mac 00:11:22:33:44:55 wlan0
    ifconfig wlan0 up

    seems to work (no errors etc) but still won't connect. I managed to get about a 10 second connection before it says connection was lost, thing is I looked at the routers log and no record of any activity involving my alfa's mac address (the real or spoofed one)

    Why change the mac?
    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

    That would require buying a guitar...
