    Default Sorry for the n00b questions...

    I just wanted to make this crystal clear. basically I want to see if I can crack my own WEP key, and I'm downloading Backtrack 3 as we speak. Burning it won't be a problem, but I wanted to make sure a few things were right:

    1) Will my Linksys WUSB54G Wireless Card be able to crack the 128 Bit WEP key using Backtrack?

    2) How can I update the card with the rt73 driver I have downloaded?

    3) How am I supposed to crack my key with this program (Link to documentation explainign this would be fine too)

    4) Do you forgive me for all of the questions :\

    Sorry about this, and thanks for reading!

    Back|Track is not a program. I suggest using something else if all you are interested in doing is cracking your key as you do not need a professional pentesting distro to accomplish that. See the Aircrack suite of tools

    BUt why is it when I run Backtrack on VMWare, I go to Applications/Internet/Wireless Assistant, my wireless stick doesn't even show up?! I know it should, since everyone else says it's compatible, but it doesn't even recognize it, so now I'm REALLY lost )=

    How do I update my cards drivers? (If that will help)

    vmware is a virtual machine. Your Backtrack installation is running on virtual hardware, being simulated by vmware. You should check out some vmware tutorials.

    Try googling:
    vmware networking tutorials

    Disclaimer: I've been drinking and probably don't know what I'm talking about.

    I googled:

    vmware wireless usb setup

    This is the second link listed:

    hxxp://baseunderattack.com/2007/08/13/installing-backtrack-2-in-vmware-6/

    secure it wasn't kidding lol

    According to "hxxp://communities.vmware.com/thread/111646", post 2, wifi does work in bridged mode with VMWare Fusion.

    Anyway, this should give you a little better idea of what you're dealing with snipez and no apology needed for noob questions, everyone was a noob at some point. Just keep in mind, you remember/understand it better when you learn the hard way.

    Have fun! That's the point!
