    I had the same problem with my laptops integrated wifi card AR9285, Tryed everything what people say on the forums, and nothing worked... Althought, i tryed everything to do with backtrack 3 till 4R2 on VMware, and i could not get it done.

    But then i solved it !!! Actualy "UNetBootin" solved the problem, i have read somewhere about that software, downloaded it (Its Freeware) installed, and run backtrack, and it worked,.. It was there, on iwconfig, airmon... etc...


    So what i have done... I have installed the UNetBootin on my Win 7, run it, made me an bootable USB for Backtrack 4R2 (its very easy), its just few clicks but it takes 10 min to Unetbootin do write it on usb stick/ usb hard drive, and then i rebooted my laptop, run and boot Backtrack 4R2 from usb... When it boot up, it was there !!
    No installation of drivers necesary,..

    On earlyer versions of BT it didnt work, cause i think, they didnt had the drivers in it. (or i did something wrong every f*ck*ng time) And i tryed instaling them, bouth drivers and BTs, using VMWare or USB boot, it did not worket...

    But now it does, hope you all who need, can solve the problem, i solved it this way...

    After a few issues and lots of googling i finally managed to get my AR9287 Wireless connection working. Ive put all the steps into a single article which can be found here :

    Hello,

    I have a little problem, when I try your guide, the terminal writes this:

    Ok, I think its configured, I can't test it right now, but I have a question, when I run airmon-ng I get this:
    Code:
    Interface       Chipset         Driver
    
    wlan0           Atheros         ath5k - [phy0]
    wlan1           Unknown         usb - [phy1]
    where the wlan0 is my integrated card and wlan1 is the USB adapter. Why doesn't it show the chipset of the wlan1 too? I feel that something went wrong gain...

    Thanks again!!!!
