Did you check the how-to on starting networking ?
Might be a good idea.
I have a issue finding the wireless network interface on a fresh bt4-r1 install.
Here are all the information I can provide:
Laptop model: Asus EeePC 1000H
WLAN Card: Ralink 2860
-- Driverversion 1.01.02.0000
-- Driverdate 28/03/2008
VMWare Workstation 7.0.0
Backtrack Version: bt4-r1-vm.tar.bz2 (VMWare image)
Host system: Windows XP SP3 Home Edition
- WLAN is working in XP
What I tried:
I started wicd (Konsole -> Internet -> Wicd)
There it said 'No wireless networks found'.
eth0 is working.
In preferences is no name for the wireless interface set!
As it is a ralink card I tried 'ifup ra0' but this is unknown.
Furthermore 'ifup wlan0' leads to 'No such device'.
Now I am just wondering if there is maybe a problem in VMware that it doesn't share the wlan from xp to bt4?
I did not change any settings in VMware, nor Bt4.
Thank you for ideas, help and suggestions!
Thank you for the reference.
I gave up after I read about the fact that built in wlan cards are not well (or not) supported by the "VMWare + BT4" solution.
Only USB Wireless Adapters are currently supported for the VMWare + BT4 solution.
How to solve that? Use a live distro or hard install distro.
Yeah that too is pretty much covered like a bazillion times. If you would have bothered to read.
