    Question Backtrack 3 Doesn't See my Alfa AWUS036H

    My alfa works with Windows, but it is not recognized in Backtrack 3: I tried it on two different laptops, when I typed in "airmon-ng" it showed only the built in card... Please, help. Thank you.

    Why not also try BT4 pre-final?

    Would it make any difference?

    it should say something like monitor mode (mon0)
    You should be good to go. I dont know alot bout linux, but this works for me. Good luck.
    Well, when I type it, here is what it says:
    ifconfig wlan0 up
    wlan0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device found

    airmon-ng start wifi0

    Interface Chipset Driver
    eth1 Broadcom bcm43xx

    airmon-ng start wlan0

    Interface Chipset Driver
    eth1 Broadcom bcm43xx


    (that's not Alfa, that's the built in card) - and that's what I am talking about

    Gosh, I need a coffee...
    Sorry, I am a real Newbie (as you can guess from the name "Newbie Area") and I don't know where to look for all that info you are referring to ..
    Also, if there is any other thread that already discusses something like that - I would appreciate if you give me a link. Thank you.

    When you typed lsusb was your card listed? If not i would try to use BT4, and yes it supports more drivers.
