Does your setup allow DHCP?
Are you trying to connect to a wireless network?
Do you have your name servers setup?
You gotta love people who don't understand the purpose of a forum. Just got this PM from Shadowhound1 (OP) asking me for help, instead of just following up his original question on here.
So, shadowhound1, have we learned what a forum is for? If you have a problem, you search to see if someone else had the same problem. If you can not find your problem (unlikely) then you post a question and hope to get positive feedback (likely if the question is uncommon), this way if someone else has a problem/question of the same nature they do the first step again (searching).Originally Posted by shadowhound1
Sending a PM asking for help is just defeating that purpose of a community. So I pose the question for everyone to answer, what is shadowhound1's problem (sent to me via PM), and what can he do to fix it?
Seems that shadowhound1 posted his question... Seems he just copy-pasted his PM to me here: http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...wifi-card.html

Common Knowledge: Username, "root". Password, "toor". "startx" gives you a GUI, and "fix-vesa" will fix BT if you have no GUI. Start networking with "/etc/init.d/networking start" and check your IP settings with "ifconfig -a". "dhclient" will automatically use DHCP for your IP. Google is your friend.
i learnt that doing
makes the wired connection work
i bought a wifi card today and have a problem getting that to work
Do not double post or create a new thread on the same topic.
Check the how-to and faq sections of the forums. There will be a guide titled how-to get networking started.
This topic has been covered.
