Could you be mode specific on the exact issue, including details, commands, output?
Yea, Ima noob.
I got a Gateway NV50A. Here are the specs.
AMD M880G Chipset?
Atheros AR5B97 Wireless Card?
After typing in 'airmon-ng' , it lists a whole lotta nothing. Is there a way I could get my card to work with Backtrack 4? Or do I have to use a USB device?
Is it via vmware?
If so u will need usb type for monitor airmon-ng etc
or is it live cd, or hardisk install?
to see what devices are there
I bet you are using vmware. You need usb dongle if that's the case.
