The crazy part is I had this nic working perfectly on backtrack 1 final, but can't seem to get it going on BT2 Final. Has something changed as far as disabled startup scripts or services that pertain to a Usb nic?
Here's all the info:

my iwconfig doesn't show the proper device name being loaded:
One thing I am having trouble doing is loading the module on startup(I modprobe after the system has loaded), Could this be the reason WHY?lo no wireless extensions.
wifi0 no wireless extensions. (My Netgear WG311T)
eth0 no wireless extensions. (my 3Com Nic)
When I load it using MODPROBE orinoco_cs then this shows in dmesg:
No errors or anything. At this point it should put a device name into my iwconfig listing.Code:orinoco 0.15 (David Gibson <email@example.com>, Pavel Roskin <firstname.lastname@example.org>, et al) orinoco_cs 0.15 (David Gibson <email@example.com>, Pavel Roskin <firstname.lastname@example.org>, et al)
Is it possible that I need to load the modules on startup rather then manually, if so HOW?. I've checked everywhere but nothing.
Thx for any help. I'm truly stumped.
