    madwifi drivers are already on bt. They work.
    Kismet is on BT. It works.

    Read http://www.kismetwireless.net/documentation.shtml

    The start-kismet-ng script linked to in the menu is supposed to setup your /usr/local/etc/kismet.conf for you. I've used it with different results. If it's not working for you, you can still edit /usr/local/etc/kismet.conf, manually. If you read the link above, you'll know how.

    source=madwifi_g,wifi0,madwifi #for atheros

    If you don't feel like reading documentation and want a point and click solution, maybe bt (and linux in general) isn't for you.

    FYI
    ifconfig will not show an interface unless it's up. You need to use "ifconfig -a" for that.
    iwconfig is normally used to see if you've got a wireless interface.


    Have Fun

    tdero, at the boot screen, try the cheat code "bt IRQpoll" because it just got my card to work, or, try buring your ISO at a slow speed (I reburnt mine at 8x, then tried the bt IRQPoll, and BAM).

    Hello,

    with the wifislax distribution, who is a back trak 2 adaptation, my network card works perfectly.

    I will try only the cheat code "bt IRQpoll", because my CD was burned at 8x.

    Best regards.

    Just make sure you don't have the "" on the cheat code as well

    Hi all,
    New to backtrack as well and i am able to see wireless networks with kismet, i am using an atheros internal wireless. But my problem is i cannot connect to any wireless networks and get to the outside.

    Any help would be appreciated greatly

    i have the exact same problem as the previous person.. Kismet and Wireless scanners in general will work properly, but no actual connection can be made. with my Atheros card (dwl-ag660)
