    I think that if you're not connected to any network that is a normal response. Unless you have a ethernet cable connected to your ethernet card. Anyway, just use CLI or WICD to connect to the internet.

    I recommend learning how to connect by CLI before trying to use WICD, as I recommend learning anything on CLI before using GUI's apps/automated scripts (like learning how to use the aircrack suite before using gerix-wifi-cracker or similar app/script, or learning ettercap in command line before using it in GUI mode).
    Later you'll be needing that knowledge, and you will be able to solve most of your problems without recurring to the forums, beside the fact that you'll have a better knowledge on the tools you'll be using and what each option does.

    Here's a guide for using the commandline to connect to the internet:

    Linux Internet Connection - Virjacode
    Ask questions on the open forums, that way everybody benefits from the solution, and everybody can be corrected when they make mistakes. Don't send me private messages asking questions that should be asked on the open forums, I won't respond. I decline all "Friend Requests".

    Here's the easiest way to connect to internet in Backtrack 4

    Code:
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
    Second code
    Code:
    sudo /usr/bin/start-network
    Then just open Wicid Network Manager and connect.
    One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure its worth watching.
