    Question Could use a bit of assistance

    Hey people,

    I have actually started using backtrack4 about week ago, and without any linux skills being a windows baby at first it was quite difficult to do anything. But with testing and getting pissed off, and wanting to throw my laptop against the wall a few times, leaving/sleeping coming back and trying trying again i finally have gotten to a good position learned a bit about linux/unix and probably wouldnt change anything. I have been reading through the posts here on backtrack4 and looked for simple answers before posting, however there is something i have just not been able to accomplish for about 2 days now lol, nomatter what i do or what i read. So i am asking this rather simple question and i will try and give as much information as i can to help you help me. Thanks.

    Ok i am duel booting vista/backtrack4
    Asus laptop.
    intel centrino 2
    Nvidia GeForce 9800 GS 512MB
    4 gigs Ram
    Energy star Certified
    Intel wireless wifi 5100 -yes a complete jerk

    So here i am just installed and couldnt figure out how to get internet working finally figured out /etc/init.d/wicd start is the command...

    Just started auditing my own security WPA/WPA2 security network. Difficult to get anywhere with, without the passcode...is military grade security certified though

    Well atleast now i can connect into my network since i figured out how to start the wicd. But as im seeing it somehow since i have a very low supported wireless card under linux due to microcrap i guess or maybe its intels fault?... ok well ive read things from; i may need to patch my card;...or update the kernel; or do something to it. Not really completely sure as to where to even start...i guess i could backtrack and read through millions of posts ive read in the past week...but that doesnt sound to fun...

    SO...moving on...ive been trying to audit the security on my network, and ive been following a video on youtube which was actually fricken fantastic...had a cool techno song ive neva heard playing over the vid and it actually helped me get really far into this whole thing learned how to use each script....its kind of interesting and fun for me atleast..even though their seems to always be some mess up somewhere where i have to find out how to work around it...so now i will post the testing that i am doing...and can anyone explain to me what is not working, where i am at, what direction i need to go, i am a little confused right now and would love a pointer or two..Please do include articles if necessary.

    OK so this is the main problem-ive changed the macs just for privacy. so disregard the numbers for now.

    So as you see and yes, i read the post and also aircrack-ng.orgs websites post and have a limited understanding of whats going wrong here. My idea of it is that simply put my network is setup to only allow a given range of mac addresses to connect into the network. And the spoofed mac i am using is not within the confines of that. So I need to either or A: See another entity connected in and spoof my mac to be the same as theyres or...i also tryed spoofing the mac to be the same as my networks mac or bssid..with similar results. I was able to spoof the mac to a mac that i normally connected to my network with, but whenever i do this all it does is just keep authenticating ...........................authenticating over and over. So coming back to kernels and drivers and the such...i feel that maybe my drivers and or kernels are not configured correctly. That inject is not working correctly...I did injection test with coming back negative that my injections are not working/or setup.

    So seeing as how i do not want to F*** up my system i will admit that the kernel updating has me completely and utterly confused and helped me not. I will show some diagnostics that i am running through airdriver-ng

    So taking all of this into account im getting that my kernel is mismatching with the present drivers, drivers are not loaded, and or i need to tweak or update some stuff, but this part is really tricky to me due to the fact i am so new to linux. So if im wrong tell me why, if im right tell me where and how.. thanks a million.

    And oh i am setting out to buy a linux book because i hate reading off the damn screen it hurts me eyes...lol..anyone want to suggest a book i can get stateside?
