    What did your research tell you? Try it and find out. Or try the hcl here on the forums or at the wiki.

    Or just keep using ubuntu since it works for you. It is not hard to compile the tools you may need. Not to mention it is a good learning experience.
    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.

    Backtrack 3 and backtrack 4 don t work with dell inspiron 1525 because of wireless card that produse by broadcom campany.This card chipset doesn't
    suppost to backtrack.
    You need fistly what do you need or what kind of wireless card do you need?
    there are so much information on the internet and you look for wireless card to ebay and buy one of them
    I bougth atheros chipset AR5008 25 bucks from ebay.You can find the cheapest than that price and different wireless card
    but you need PCI-E tippical wireless card
    good luck!!!
