    Is Backtrack 5 detecting it ? are you sure wlan0 is the name of the adapter ?
    Back|track giving machine guns to monkeys since 2007 !

    Run iwconfig at the command prompt to find out the name of the adapter(s).
    If I could figure out how to scuba dive & hack at the same time, there would be nothing I couldn't do...
