I've been using BackTrack since BT5, then upgraded to BT5 R1 and recently to BT5 R2, so I'm not new to BackTrack and definitely not new to Linux in general. I decided to post this in the beginners section because it seems like a newbie issue and I can't think of where to start with troubleshooting.
I have a router with WEP encryption that I am able to successfully connect to with BackTrack, however I am not getting an internet connection. I have tried to browse the web, I have used ettercap to scan for hosts and it returns 0 hosts, I have tried to ping google.com from the command line which returns 100% packet loss.
I am able to connect to the network in BT5 R1 and get an internet connection, and I am able to connect in Linux Mint and get an internet connection.
I have searched everything I can think of and have not seen anyone else reporting this issue, does anyone have any ideas or any threads I may have missed that discuss this same issue?
Any help is appreciated.
