    Default BT4 Connect to WEP problem

    Hello everyone!

    Last month I have downloaded BT4 final and i really love it!
    Only there's one problem. I have a router where i can test the crack software on. My router has a WEP security.

    If I run Backtrack 3 i can easily connect to my test router, but if I try it with backtrack4 i can't connect!
    It just keep stucking at "authentication validation" and after a minute i get a message: "not connected".

    Can someone help me with my problem?

    Thanks in advance!

    In The Wicd Network Manager Have You Clicked On The Small Drop down Arrow Next To The Name Of The Wireless, and clicked on the advanced settings button, in-putted the key and selected the right encryption method.

    Welcome to BT4.

    Did you start your networking interfaces?

    Also posting the exact error message on the program you are running would be helpful.

    try to connect without encryption
    investigate driver issues
    try different wifi card
    read the FAQ
    search the forums
    post actual information about hardware used
    ----
    rinse, wash, repeat.


    good luck with that.

    Hi again,

    @ FurryTurtle
    I knew that or else i couldnt enter the key

    @ Icicle
    I have done that, i tested my wireless card with a normal router with WPA2 encryption. I can connect to that router within a split second.

    @ macphail
    Could you please explain, why i can connect to wep in BT3 and not in BT4?

    @ ikonitas
    I tried that yes, but i still cant connect to my test router.

    I have a normal wifi card from my laptop "broadcom" and an Alfa wireless adapter and i cant connect to WEP with both of them.

    Very strange problem

    What Macphail is saying, is alot of this has been gone over through out the forum, we need to know more about your wireless card, broadcom, Alfa, really don't tell us anything, look on broadcom page, and see how many different cards/usb dongles/mini pcie ect there is we are not mind readers we cant help with out info, chip set, more in depth on what you have tried.
