So I downloaded Backtrack 4 and am stuck once again. Here are my laptops specs.

Model Name: MacBook Pro
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 2.8 GHz
Number Of Processors: 1
Total Number Of Cores: 2
L2 Cache: 6 MB
Memory: 4 GB

First I tried kisMAC which led me to a wall when it came to injecting packets. I was able to make it monitor after some tweaking but airport extreme cards will not inject packets and no one has written a driver to make it happen. I did read somewhere that backtrack had the capability of making it happen so I went ahead and downloaded backtrack 4 and gave it a whirl.

When I enter airmon-ng I am given three columns with no information (Interface, Chipset, Driver). Looking around has had me try a great deal of things. So I apologize if I leave something out.

I have..

Tried using the Wireless LAN Manager.
That was the first program to pick up any interface at all. "eth0"

ifconfig X up
x being wifi0, ath0, eth0, and lo. lo was the only one that did something different. Different meaning it did nothing at all rather than returning the "no such device" error. Putting it down does nothing either.

iwconfig
That brought back "no wireless extensions" for lo and eth0.



Thought maybe it was the connection to vmware..
That search brought about the command "lspci". That returned a very long response.. That led to no results in google.

Then I thought it might be the iso. So I went ahead and downloaded BT3 thinking it may be more stable. That yielded the same results.

I would just like to have the answer to what seems like a very simple task. Or at least a nice push in the right direction to continue trying new things.

If you need more information or for me to test something just let me know.

Thanks in advance.
