    Hello,

    With help of this forum I've managed to get Backtrack 3 (final) installed in VMware-workstation(6.5.1 b.126130). Getting VMware-tools installed was a bit harder (problems with kernel etc..) but after reading numerous threads on this forum I got it to work! Then I had to install the driver for the WUSB54GC wifi-dongle. I followed the next steps:

    bt ~ # cd rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.1/Module
    bt Module # make
    bt Module # make install
    bt Module # cd
    bt ~ # modprobe rt73

    It seems to be working , but I've read that the WUSB54GC works "out of the box" with Backtrack, how can I see/check what driver (version) is used (is there a command to show installed drivers)?

    Thanks for reading!

    @ll@rdo,
    Welcome to the forums.

    You can try this:
    Code:
    airdriver-ng loaded
    modinfo <module>

    Thank you for your quick reply!

    I've tried your given code:

    bt ~ # airdriver-ng loaded
    Found following stacks loaded (as module):

    Found following drivers loaded (as module):
    31. Ralink rt73 (legacy)

    The second one I didn't understand, when typing modinfo <module>

    -bash: syntax error near unexpected token 'newline'


    The outcome didn't make clear what driver version is loaded. I was hoping that i would see the driver info like: rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.1


    Maybe Im doing something wrong..... (i'm new to linux, so i've got to learn a lot!)

    My friend,

    please try to learn some basic linux stuff before you post. Google and man command are your friends.
    Code:
    man modinfo
