    pls need more info, is this a hdd install, or a live cd/usb install, and how have you tried to "set up your wireless"
    have you turned on your wireless interfaces with the ifconfig interface up command, or have you used the handy "start networking" button on the services tab and run wicd?
    plus, is your network encrypted or is it open?

    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    The Forum Rules, Forum FAQ and the BackTrack Wiki... learn them, love them, live them.

    Want to leave windows? Like make Backtrack your full distro? Also, I found the "up" arrow to be funny
    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.
