    I'm having the exact same issue with the Acer Aspire 5742. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I've tried using the function key with F3 to turn on the wireless but thats no help, the Hardware Driver in System>Administration>Hardware Driver has the activate button right there, but there's always an error. I've done my share of exploration but I was hoping there might be something I've missed that people could post back. thank you!!!

    is there anyone that could possibly help with this? I've been able to get the wireless to work on the USB version as well as the VMware version of backtrack5R1. Its the main HD version that I just can't seem to figure out. Please anyone that can give some light would be greatly appreciated.

    You can try this drivers, download the one for brcm (broadcom): firmware-brcm80211_0.35_all.deb, it is the latest, and try it..

    Install the firware: dpkg -i "firware you downloaded"...

    Here is the link:

    Try them and see if it works.

    Luck.

    try this codes:
    airmon-ng // to see your wireless interfaces.

    you would get an output like this.

    Interface Chipset Driver

    wlan0 Atheros ath9k - [phy0]

    if not, then type,

    airmon-ng start wlan0

    if you have an output like follows,

    "Found 2 processes that could cause trouble.
    If airodump-ng, aireplay-ng or airtun-ng stops working after
    a short period of time, you may want to kill (some of) them!

    PID Name
    1406 dhclient3
    1634 dhclient3
    Process with PID 1634 (dhclient3) is running on interface wlan0


    Interface Chipset Driver

    wlan0 Atheros ath9k - [phy0]
    (monitor mode enabled on mon0)

    you re good to go! enjoy.
