    Default Linux Noob Needs Help with USB Wireless Card-Not Recognized

    I am new to linux, been meaning to learn it, then when I found this site, gave me more than enough reason to learn it.
    I am running Windows 7, with Virtual Box which has BackTrack 4 installed on it
    I have a Cisco WUSB54GC Version 3 USBnetwork adapter, and connected it to the virtual machine

    In the peripherals application it sees the usb network drive, but when I run ifconfig, only the eth0 and lo are shown. I also ran the etc/init..... command


    I have read the forums, and tried lots of the suggestions, however when I try the terminal commands, i get errors.
    I know that it has the rt73 drives, any help would be great

    Hello,

    Did you try running /etc/init.d/wicd start to start the wicd utility that may solve your problems wicd is a gui network manager.

    I have this problem too.
    IMB THINKPAD T41 with cisco mini-pci card
    Can't get network connection even when using iwconfig and ifconfig to configure my wireless card drivers.

    Do I need to install separate drivers from lenova / ibm for linux?

    Cisco are quite a large company I'd be disappointed to find out that I did after all the good things I've heard about Linux to date.
