    just because it is loaded, that doesn't mean that it is active.

    bring the interface up or throw a switch at ifconfig to have it report on all interfaces, up or not.

    What I am saying is, read the link below in regards to being new to linux and or BackTrack.
    There is plenty of info on the subject so also use the search function.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
    ForumRules
    ForumFAQ
    If you are new to Back|Track
    Back|Track Wiki
    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.
