    Default I cannot perform any PenTest's in BT4-Beta with A BCM4312. Why is this???

    Hi Guys...

    I am running BT4-Beta from a .iso Image in a VirtualBox OSE Virtual Machine Inside Ubuntu 9.04.

    But I am having trouble configuring BT4-Beta to recognise my WLAN card and perform any PenTests!.

    Strangely, I can surf the web after using the '/etc/init.d/networking start' Command.

    So I know that my WLAN card is listening!!

    I have a Broadcom BCM4312 802.11b/g WLAN Card.

    Here is the output from 'lshw -C network' (Ran from inside ubuntu)
    (NOT In VirtualBox OSE!!)

    To show my WLAN adapter I have on my Laptop::-

    *-network
    description: Wireless interface
    product: BCM4312 802.11b/g
    vendor: Broadcom Corporation
    physical id: 0
    bus info: pci@0000:04:00.0
    logical name: eth1
    version: 01
    serial: 00:24:2b:70:48:b4
    width: 64 bits
    clock: 33MHz
    capabilities: bus_master cap_list ethernet physical wireless
    configuration: broadcast=yes driver=wl0 driverversion=5.10.79.10 ip=192.168.0.2 latency=0 module=wl multicast=yes wireless=IEEE 802.11

    But if I run 'iwconfig' in BT4-Beta running inside VirtualBox OSE Virtual Machine, I get this output:

    lo no wireless device

    eth0 no wireless device

    eth1 no wireless device

    What can I do to rectify this. I would appreciate any help on this please!!


    Cheers in advance...

    I don't know what kind of 'pentester' you are, but you're obviously not a thorough one nor a stickler for details. You're not going to get very far with 1) a BCM4312 2) the card in a Virtualbox environment.

    1) Get a card that doesn't suck
    2) Learn to research / search for your hardware problems

    Thank's for the reply wyse.

    You're right about me not reading enough about future issues (Point Taken)...

    Too be honest most of what I have read has been a load of gibberish and Bollocks!

    I am more of a trial and error man.

    As for me and researching. thats exactly why I'm here.

    Can you suggest a good WLAN card suited to the above tasks?

    I am out to purchase one soon.

    The WLAN card I have at the moment is built into my laptop. So I need a removable one. (If you can name a couple??)

    Would the card I have at present work if I was not to use it in A Virtual environment?
