as Backtrack didnt work with my integrated network card of my Lenovo X220i Notebook, I just purchased an Alfa AWUS036NHR.
I started up Backtrack 5 R1 via my bootable USB Stick and hoped for a simple plug & play... Appearently it isnt as easy as that though... iwconfig doesnt show the AWUS036NHR and airmon-ng still hangs itself up (endlees loop, never ends and shows nothing).
I really need to get that thing to work... Please help me and do an really easy step to step guide for me on how to install needed drivers or something. I never used Linux before and I am therefore a complete noob in Linux regards.
