Hello Backtrack Community
Good Job you guys are doing, i've been reading the forums consistent for 4 days now and cant find my answers so i decide to post up.

I am using the Toshiba Satellite L505 With the Windows 7 OS installed. I installed VMware workstation to run backtrack 4 r2 with a bridge connection, however i'm unable to bring up wlan0 whenever i run the command
/etc/init.d/networking start
, it seems to me that
lspci
wont even see my network controller. I will quote all the information i can about what i did to troubleshoot this without luck. I installed the latest linux driver from realtek official website. unpack the gz make and make install then reboot and still no luck.

code: /etc/init.d/networking start
