The problem is when connecting to the router with BT5 using wireless antenna model AWUS036NH It tries to get past t validating authentication in WICD but then gives a 'bad password' error when the password is right and Winows can connect to the wireless fine with the same credentials.

A number of 'fixes' have been tried from going through the forum however none have resolved the issue.

  • BackTrack VM Version 5
  • Tried in ISO
  • BT5 gnome 32 bit VMPlayer
  • BT5 gnome 32 bit VMWare Workstation
  • Tried in ISO within Oracle Virtual Box
  • BackTrack 5 compatible wireless adapter - AWUS036NH


Has anyone experienced this before and can offer any tips/suggestions?

Cheers
