    Have a search of the forums and the Internet, this question has been answered a number of times already.

    You may want to play around with Ubuntu a bit further, and get used to configuring your network from the command line, as well as learn how device drivers work in Linux. Remember that BT is for advanced users so this knowledge is expected.
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    If your used to ubuntu then just download Backtrack 4. Because the commands are similar and it's not wlan0 for Backtrack 3 it would prolly be ath0. To double chack that type in iwconfig and see what your wireless interfaces are.
    One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure its worth watching.
