    Default Help with wireless card

    The card i am using is a buffalo WLI-CB-G54HP. When i boot up BT2 the power light comes on when it starts the services an reads out the mac addresses, but it goes off and isnt reconized thereafter. I got it working in Ubuntu by installing bcm43xx-fwcutter. It came right on with it installed. I tried installing it but am unable. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

    Thats odd. the backtrack 2 HCL says its supported and found at boot up and ready to go. no interface listed under iwconfig?

    What are you trying to do? Connect to YOUR access point for internet access or enable monitor mode?

    Try ifconfig eth1 up then iwlist eth1 scan.
