    Default Intel 6200 adapter firmware update

    I'm using Backtrack 4 booting from a usb stick.
    My Sony laptop has the new Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6200 AGN adapter.
    I was trying to get aircrack to work and i kept having that lame "SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory" error...After a lot of searching i found out that it has to do with the adapter's firmware so i checked in /lib/firmware folder and it has firmwares for up to 5000 series and not for the 6000 ones.
    Anyway,i found the the microcode image needed for my adapter are here: http://intellinuxwireless.org/iwlwif...-9.193.4.1.tgz

    So, my 1 million $ question is.....Can i copy them somehow from the laptop's hard disk (using windows 7) to the usb stick and place them inside the /lib/firmware folder? If not, is there anything else i can do about the firmware?

    Needless to say, i'm a total linux noob

    why don't you copy them from BT, using mounted laptop's hard disk?

    try to
    Code:
    # locate iwlwifi
    the command shows you all paths which contain string "iwlwifi"

    Might want to mention about updating the database before actually using this command. Since it will not locate the above if said database is outdated.

    All i found are the *.ucode files up to 5150i.. and they are not the ones im needing.....

    As for updating i cant connect to internet with BT since i cant make my Huawei usb modem (using Vodafone 3G broadband) to work...

    Is there a way to download the needed updates using windows and install them to BT manually??

    P.S I no longer use a live usb to boot to BT, it's intalled to a hard disk partition

    I am still having troubles with this. I copied over the files into the firmware folder but nothing loads. I see 5000 series drivers and 4965 drivers but not 6000 series drivers. Please help!
