    Default Intel 4965 BT support?

    Hi guys, new to this backtrack thing and i wanted to use it to test out various networks to see if they are secure enough or if i have to make them stronger but i ran into a bit of a problem...or so i think.

    Is the intel wifi link 4965 supported in backtrack4?

    (I found out that backtrack cant use the wifi card via wmware so i gotta re download the iso image and burn it to try in the morning but does it support it?)

    also if it does not, would this work

    tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3350612&CatId=2699[/url]

    dosent look to expensive so i think i would pick this up if the wifi link 2965 does not work. I would appreciate if someone could help me out =). I shall check this thread in the morning. Thank you.

    Hello cruisx,
    The reason you have not got any answers is probably you are not specific with your title. If you want to find out if your card is compatible I would look at this link. It is the HCL list

    http://backtrack.offensive-security....p/HCL:Wireless

    If your card is not compatible I would seriously consider the Alfa AWUS036H

    All the best

    I'm using a TL-WN321G stick right now for accessing the internet at work (saves me having to drag my Alfa 500 mW around with me). If you're close to an access point then it works great... but beware this stick has very poor range.

    How bad is the range exactly? Well i will be using it to just test my own or test others for example? Like my cousins to see if we can crack it or not. Just as a pass time. But ya i think if i am beside my router it shoudlnt be a problem? Also what do u recomend to buy if i want some more range but want to keep the price low?

    Also it turns out that my 4965 dosenot work =/ it keeps asking to use this packet after a few minuets and i type y and it repeats.

    If you're in the same house as the access point, you shouldn't have a problem, the signal should be OK.

    If you live in a detatched house, and your cousin is your next-door neighbourhood, it's pretty likely you won't be able to get a good enough connection to connect to your cousin's.
