    iface lo inet loopback

    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet dhcp

    auto eth1
    iface eth1 inet dhcp

    auto eth2
    iface eth2 inet dhcp

    auto ath0
    iface ath0 inet dhcp

    Thumbs down Re: BT4 does not detect drivers and LAN

    I may not be any help answering your question but you've still provided very little information.

    What type of hardware are you using? NIC Model/Chipset?

    Have you enabled networking? /etc/init.d/networking start

    First of all use the EDIT button, there is not need for multiple posts.
    Second I do not fully understand you issue:

    i read one of the posts about network problems
    they had given this shell cmd i used it now all my LAN, USB drivers are working
    $: iwconfig

    $:/etc/init.d/networking start


    but since i'm using Live cd and bootable USB should use these commands evertime when i boot BT4 what about u guys how do you solve these problems
    You say the drivers and all is working now, and you complain about having to run these commands on every boot up ? In that case it is normal, Backtrack does not start networking automatically.
    Back|track giving machine guns to monkeys since 2007 !

    Do not read the Wiki, most your questions will not be answered there !
