    Default Need help with wireless networking

    Hello,

    I was wondering if someone could help me connect to my wireless network. So far I have learned how to log in as root user, start networking via "/etc/init.d/networking start" and even connect to the internet via an ethernet cord. The problem is that the Wicd Network Manager does not detect any wireless networks, so I cannot join any. My Backtrack 4 installation is physical, not on a virtual machine. My wireless network card is the Dell Wireless 1510 Wireless-N WLAN Mini-Card. If anyone could help, I would much appreciate it.

    Is your wireless card detected successful?

    You could try to find it out by running
    Code:
    iwconfig
    .

    When I use that command I get:


    lo no wireless extensions

    eth0 no wireless extensions
