    Question 1000H and WICD problems (VMware)

    Hello everybody.

    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!

    Did you check the how-to on starting networking ?
    Might be a good idea.

    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.

    For others:
    Only USB Wireless Adapters are currently supported for the VMWare + BT4 solution.

    How to solve that? Use a live distro or hard install distro.

    Regards, Onycro.

    Yeah that too is pretty much covered like a bazillion times. If you would have bothered to read.
