    Default Backtrack 5r1 USB Wifi n-53 detailed

    Ran a live DVD with backtrack 5 r1 and the Ethernet worked but my asus USB n53 did not work it said no wireless

    So then I ran VMware workstation 8 installed backtrack booted up and still the same problem no wireless I did some research and it turns out its most likely a driver issue. I followed the instructions here http://www.backtrack-linux.org/wiki/...reless_Drivers to the T" after some it
    Ran then I went back into the network area in back track still no wireless.. The is what I get when I run the

    Try installing this firmware: http://mmc.geofisica.unam.mx/debian/...mware-nonfree/

    Almost at the end, firmware-ralink-0.36_all.deb

    See if it works..

    Please read this: http://wikidevi.com/wiki/ASUS_USB-N53

    And again, please, it does not have to do anything with the brand, color, usb, etc...It has to do with "Chipset"....If buying some wifi card, look for a chipset supported, not brand...

    Luck.
