    Question Problems with TP-WN722n wifi adapter

    Hi

    For some weird reason I can't get the WN-722N usb adapter to work in backtrack4. Tried installing compat-wireless 2010-04-21 with no success.

    root@bt:~# ifconfig

    root@bt:~# iwconfig
    lo no wireless extensions.

    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    The same thing over and over going crazy now. Tried couple of different versions now with no luck at all.

    Can anybody give me any idea in what direction to go from here or what to do please?

    Thanks

    What happens if you use the command below?

    Code:
    # /etc/init.d/networking start
