I patched Backtrack 5 when the you have N updates message appear on my screen and after a reboot my wlan0 device disappeared.
When i execute
lspci -vnn |grep -i net
i get the following response which tells me that my wlan0 hardware is still alive [4e4 : 4727]
any ideas? When i found a solution i will share it here...
01:00.0 Ethernet controller : Atheros Communications AR8152 v2.0 Fast Ethernet [1969:2062] (rev c1)
02:00.0 Network controller : Broadcom Corporation Device [14e4:4727] (rev 01)
Edit: hmm i just remember that i run the
command .. maybe that caused the problem ?
iwconfig wlan0 txpower auto
and when i run
i see "Failed to bring up wlan0" as last line
okay i noticed that i can boot the old version of BT5 from the boot menu and Voila! there is a wlan0 device
here some research..
