    Exclamation How to connect to Wireless network using DHCP on BT4 ?

    Hi All,

    I've got Dell Vostro 1500 which has Intel 3945abg network and broadcom builtin network card, i also put EDIMAX EW7318USg (rt73USB) network card on my BT4 system, how do i connect to Network wireless using wlan0 and wired eth0 DHCP using Backtrack 4 final ?

    i tried to plug in the network card and enable the card using ifconfig but still failed ?

    any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    for using DHCP to optain a IP use
    Code:
    dhclient eth0
    For wireless, start
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/wicd start
    then use wicd-client under KDE

    Read this:

    You can use the "iwconfig" command to configure wireless networking but its much easier to do this:

    /etc/init.d/wicd start

    then open wicd from the internet cat in the start menu
