    Unhappy No Internet on BackTrack 4

    I can't go to any website on BackTrack 4. Is it supposed to be like that? Im using a wireless connection.

    Did you start networking?

    /etc/init.d/networking start
    Did you configure your wireless card? One way is with wicd:

    /etc/init.d/wicd start
    Then configure the wireless network connection using K Menu-Internet-Wicd Network Manager
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    backtrack doesn't start networking by its own, it's an unwanted behaviour if you're trying to be quiet. You can go online via Menu -> Services -> NETWORK -> Start NETWORK, then Menu -> Internet -> Wicd.

    hey man

    you need to start the network first

    start > services > network> start network

    and then to see waht connections are availeble click on:

    start > internet> wcid network manager

    and just connect to your home access point (routher )

    for any more questions, just ask

    I can see my gateway through my Ethernet card and can connect but apparently my built-in wireless card does not work because it does not see any wireless network on Wicd manager, any help?

    Some commands that would help in trouble shooting:

    /etc/init.d/networking restart
    ifconfig -a [COLOR="rgb(139, 0, 0)"]// Do you see wlan0 or wifi0 ?[/COLOR]
    iwconfig [COLOR="rgb(139, 0, 0)"]// this command will let you know if your wireless card is know by the system[/COLOR]

    simply open terminal and type in:

    Code:
    start-network
    then u can use "wicd" from Internet menu.

    Ok enough has been said about this issue. There was enough help and a simple search would have be enough to find an answer too.
