First of all I'd like to say that I updated my machine %100.
Second, without installing anything, its recognized as an adapter, (but the chipset is unkown). When I try to connect to a wifi network in wikc network manager, it goes through this process.1
1) Scans for a network, successfully finds several ones.
2) Disconnecting all active connections
3) Putting interface down
4) putting interface up
5) NONE: Obtaining IP address (or it will say verifying password if I am connecting to a WPA2)
6) Cisco: Obtaining IP address
7) Error: Unable to obtain IP address.
Thats what happens when is start the machine. When I try to scan for networks again, it is unable to find any networks.
Only after I reboot my backtrack(in VMware) or disconnect/reconnect my adapter will it find networks again. I figured out after I press "Disconnet Active Connections" in wicd network manager will it turn of my adapter, then make it so that my adapter can't scan again...
I tried downloading the "Network manager" nm-applet thing. That didn't work either.
I tried following this TuT, but got two errors!
After I typed:
ln -s /usr/src/linux-headers-22.214.171.124/Module.symvers /usr/src/linux-source-126.96.36.199/Module.symvers
I got an error
ln: creating symbolic link `/usr/src/linux-source-188.8.131.52/Module.symvers': No such file or directory
After I typed "make" I got this error:
make -C /lib/modules/3.2.6/build M=/usr/src/compat-wireless-2011-10-06 modules

Can Anyone help me? Thanks
