    Default Need a little info

    Hi I have a wierd problem not just with Backtrack but with almost every Linux. It seems like no Linux distribution recognises my wireless LAN card, so no internet ...
    The only thing that works till now is installing Ubuntu with Wubi, but I'm trying hard to install the software packages from BT but still ...
    So the questions I have for you are :
    1. Is there something like Wubi for Backtrack ?
    2. Does anyone know how to solve my Wireless card problem?
    3. If there is nothing to be made can i make my ubuntu as performant as Backtrack ?

    It would be helpful if you actually told us what type of wireless card you have.

    lol I love how people always ask for help with hardware and don't specify what it is.

    I think that should be a forum rule.

    Do check the rules you agreed to uphold. They are "stickied" in every section of the forums. That way you will know that it is wrong to create multiple threads on the same topic. Further violations can and will lead to infractions.
    Thanks.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
    ForumRules
    ForumFAQ
    If you are new to Back|Track
    Back|Track Wiki
    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.
