Hello guys, I'm new to this forum
I'm having some problem with backtrack, its not installed at vmware or what so ever
When i start the networking first
It's starting fine and i do startx
now i try to get some internet from Wlan0 and nothing happens.. well i really dont know how to config the network card in backtrack so i need some help with that
This is my network card name if u need it
Network Adapter Realtek RTL8168D/8111D Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.20)
you can do it automaticaly if your network has dynamic IP addressing with starting wicd client. Do that with "wicd start".
If you use static addresing then you can still configure it through wicd (at least i think so), or you can do it through shell by selecting IP address gateway and DNS
Some troubleshooting commands:
Netstat -pan|head //Look to see if you see udp port 68 is listening
ps -ef|grep dhclient //checks to see if the dhcp client daemon is running
make this lines :
iwconfig wlan0 essid (PUT YOUR SSID NAME)
ifconfig wlan0 (PUT YOUR LOCAL IP) netmask (PUT YOUR MASK)
route add default gw (PUT GW IP) wlan0
nano /etc/resolv.conf <----------------------nameserver 188.8.131.52
let me know....if that work for you or not.
ESSID is your network's name. Your question would have been easily answered with a quick search on google with the term "ESSID".
