    Default How to set up my Wireless USB card BT4

    Ok I have a SMC - SMCWUSB-G Wireless usb card.
    I checked the tested wireless cards and drivers for BT on :

    hxxp://backtrack.offensive-security.com/index.php?title=HCL:Wireless#SMCWUSB-G_EU

    and I found my card there. The problem is it automaticly works in BT3 but not in BT4.
    When I type in lspci it sees the card but somehow I can't enable it.
    Tried "iwconfig", "dhclient", "airmon-ng start"

    sickness,

    you are typing commands in a console without knowing what to expect to get with these commands. You must start reading all the basic linux commands. Don't expect to get any help here in basic linux stuff.

    Just to help you out a bit:
    Try:
    Code:
    ifconfig -a
    to see if your card is recognized by BT4.
    And:
    Code:
    ifconfig <xxxx> up
    where xxxx should be wlan0 or wifi0 or whatever.
    After all that start doing:
    Code:
    man ifconfig
    then..
    Code:
    man iwconfig
    and then...
    you know what I am trying to say.

    I was typing the shortcuts I used of these commands.
    I did use ifconfig-a then ifconfig-a device up, Than iwconfig device, than allocated the device the essid, airmon-ng device start.
    It didn't work.
    And I specified that my card is seen in BT4 just not enabled/configured
