usb wireless card not detected?
Hey i have backtrack 4 pre-final installed with VMware fusion i have a compatible usb wireless card (Alfa Network awuso36h) and i believe it should work out of the box, as i read it already has the drivers! So this is what i get:
lo Link encap: Local Loopback
inet addr : 127.0.0.1 Mask: 255.0.0.0
UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU: 16436 Metric: 1

:~# ifconfig wlan0 up
wlan0: Error while getting interface flags: No such device
Any advice, where im going wrong? Thankyou.
Search a bit more next time, this has been covered ad nauseum, and don't reply stating that you did but did not find anything.
Ohh im sorry i feel kinda stupid now, can see why you get annoyed. All i had to do was enable the USB through the VMware!
Do i dare to ask? .... Yep !
Funny, i have the same problem, only i use an apple macbook, running BT inside parallels...

Ow,... and parallels doesnt provide an option to turn usb on or off....
Well im online, but one more question my network adapter doesnt flash? I know its kinda silly cause its still working but, id like to be able to see it working if u get me? And ive searched that ones definetly not on here!
Im on MacBook too mate, but im using VMware Fusion if u get that i may be able to help ya get online, this lot dont seem to bother cause they prob get it everyday!
Smiler: That's probably something to do with led_cfg. I'd try upgrading the kernel to the latest one that's in the repository and if its still no dice, maybe you need to tinker around if you want flashing led.
