I used to have BT4 installed on this computer and I used it to do a variety of shenanigans such crack WEP keys, obtain WPA handshakes, and deauthenticate my friends during Counter-Strike games at LAN parties (their confusion was priceless). When BT5-R1 came out I decided to install it to replace BT4. Everything went well, and I had the chance to use it to crack a couple of WEP keys. I used airmon, aireplay, and aircrack with no problem. Then I bought a Solid State Drive for my laptop and replaced my old HDD with it. I have Windows and BT5-R1 installed right now, but airmon does not work anymore! Besides the new SSD, there have been no hardware changes in my laptop, and I really doubt that the SSD could be causing this trouble. I tried running BT5 from a USB flash drive and I experience the same symptoms - no interfaces:
I can connect to the internet without any trouble, and this is what iwconfig gives me
Interface Chipset Driver
This is what ifconfig gives:
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.

Like I said, I've done this procedure before on this very same laptop, so I know all the steps (not doing anything different in that aspect), my card is capable of injection, etc...

What could be causing this problem, and how can I fix it?
