Try disabling encryption and connecting with WICD, check if that works.
Of course, before posting here I have read all similar threads in:
but i found no solution
I am using persistent USB.
I have found a lot of solutions suggested.Though none does for me.
First of all: I have downloaded BT4R2 1 week ago. I had problems with my chipset/driver issue( i have RT2870/RT3070 chipset and i use a rt2800usb driver, a popular member of aircrack-ng suggested me, and it worked). I was able to monitor and inject excellent(i think as i haven't tries with another driver to compare). I am sure that i was as i managed to crack my AP(using WPA)
After cracking several times my AP(several because i was trying different options etc.) i rebooted my PC logging in ubuntu to explore more stuff. Then i rebooted back to Backtrack to "play" again with aircrack. after using airodump-ng -c mychannel ...etc.... i used aireplay to provoke a handshake (i had another PC near me connected to my AP) but nothing happend even if i tried several times.
Not only that but even if i manually disconnect and then connect with my other PC, no handshake...
Then i used wicd to "google" in order to find a solution but i realised that i could not connect.
Wicd then pop an error message saying: couldn't connect, Bad Password(or smthing like this)
Of course the password i use is correct(its MY AP) and i have the option passfrase enabled(as i use WPA)
*I have not enabled macfiltering*
*I can connect using the same USB adaptor using ubuntu or windows7*
*i have tried to connect manualy*
*I have read "How to start networking in Backtrack*
*wicd curses not working too!*
Here is a screenshot:
I hope that my post is clear enough
P.S:sorry about my englsh
waiting for a response
too late to try it.... am reinstalling backtrack in my USB, then i will install again the drivers, i will inject my AP, then i will post if i am able to suf and inject
Note: I have 2 SSIDs using the same AP with different password...None of them worked...
Got same issues.
Hawe BT on hdd and when i go on it connet and all is ok. Somethime when i log on main os win7 it and on networs sharing center it remowe conectio like noone is in range and show !.
Only thing it helps if i turn off/on modem then all is ok. I try unplug usb card and plug again it donst help.
I am also having bad password problems WPA2 and WEP. Tried disabling encryption still won't work.
Running BT4 r2 on SD card on eeePc, atheros wifi.
Tried two different USB wifi both using zd1211.
Problem started after apt-get update last week.
Using another SD card install (my back up card because I have suffered a SD card failure previously ) without any recent update and thats running fine. I have No plans for any further updates to my spare SD card untill I solve the problem with the first card.
Remove network-manager first then restart wicd and it connects no problem. Then I found wired would not connect - restart wicd again and now both wired and wifi work OK
removal # aptitude remove network-manager
restart # /etcinit.d/wicd restart
hope this helps
I am having this same issue, though I didn't think that network manager was installed with BT4R2. A reinstall of the OS did nothing for me. WPA is fine, I get the bad password prompt with WEP.
Are there any other options besides network manager and wicd?
