    Yeah i saw that thread when i was searching but couldnt tell if the german guy was looking for info on the rtl8187L or B driver as i need the info for the B driver. But i saw that you had created a script that automates the install process and everything if thats what your gonna post up ill definatly be interested in that.

    Yeah it is, and from memory all the drivers are pretty well the same. I'm using an 8185 driver with my 8187 card on PCI. I'll be posting the script later on, so take a look then.

    This is an archive of the 8185 drivers, which work for the 8185 obviously, but also for the 8187. Download it to your /root/ folder. Then open up a console and type:
    tar xfz wireless.tar.gz
    ./wireless.sh

    This will install the drivers for you and start your device. These definitely work for the PCI versions, and assuming they would be the same for USB, but if not, give me a hollar. After those two have completed, do the usual and type:
    iwconfig #to find out wireless interface names
    airmon-ng stop wlan0 #this is the probably interface name
    airmon-ng start wlan0 #again, same thing

    And then you should be ready to go.

    There you go, in case you were too lazy to look at the other one :P

    I am having the same issue, if anyone could help me that would be greatly appreciated. I have the RTL8187B USB 2.0 card, Backtrack3 is recognizing the card but isn't installing the drivers. When I do the "ifconfig" command it doesn't find the card, when I use the "ifconfig wlan0 up" command it says "wlan0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device". Please help me.
    If you need to contact me by e-mail: dmanwithers@gmail.com
