RA73 WUSB54GC USB Driver in VMware
I downloaded the BT4 Final release VM image and am trying to get my wireless USB dongle to detect but nothing is showing up. It is a Linksys WUSB54GCv3 which from everything i've read should work with the RA73 drivers.
The interface will not show up. If i look in System>Settings>Hardware>USB i can see under EHCI Host Controller a 802.11 g WLAN with the Manufacture Ralink.
Yes i have this attached to the VM. I also tried to update the driver using serialmonkey's, as per this thread:
The driver install works fine: modinfo rt73 lists the new driver output. (I'm using version 3.0.3)
As a last resort i tried to use the .ISO version of BT4Final and boot with the usb plugged in, same results.
How can i tell if a driver is failing to apply to this adapter or does anyone else have an idea?
Positive feedback is appreciated, i'm not a total newbie
There are lots of thread about this dongle. Truth be told that it isn't a rt73 or rt2570 chipset but rather a rt2870 based chipset. You can try the rt28xx driver that's available in the repo.
Even if the chipset is actually a rt73, there has never been the need to install any separate drivers for it as it would have been included in backtrack since backtrack2
