    Default How to install unsupported wifi drivers? Need help.

    I have Hawking HWDN1 adapter (chipset rt2870) and it is not supported by BT4. Some time ago, someone posted that in fact it is not supported

    http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...h-adapter.html

    I have found the drivers, but have trouble installing it (alright, alright, i don't know how).

    Ralink corp.

    Could someone please walk me thru the installation process? I am running BT4 from HD (not VMWare)

    I did and I ran into some problems:

    I fount this page :
    RT2870 BT4 Guide (working!!!) - Remote Exploit Forums
    Downloaded the drivers, followed the instrustions, and right by the end I ran into a problem:

    Code:
