I have installed Backtrack 5 to my hard drive in dual boot with Windows Xp. I am completely new to Linux so be easy on me please. The problem I am having is with a USB network card.

It is a Belkin F5D8053.

If I type in 'airmon-ng' it shows as 'interface: wlan1 Chipset: RTL8187 Driver: r8187'

If I run 'airodump-ng wlan1' I get the 'ioctl(SIOCSIFFLAGS) failed: Resource temporarily unavailable' error. I did some research and found a post that said:

*Problem:
*Network interface (or anything else on the pci bus) says "SIOCSIFFLAGS: Resource temporarily unavailable"
*Cause:
*No IRQ assigned to the device, check /proc/pci (irq says 0)
*Solution:
*Enter the bios setup (F1 or Del on boot), disable the option 'Plug n Play OS'.
*Reason:
*This will make your bios set up IRQs for you.

In my bios settings there is no way to disable Plug n Play OS, not a option for it.

Any other clues?

I also have a Edimax EW-7108PCg PCI card that works fine. But would like to use the Belkin.

I am using a older Compaq Presario 2199us laptop
