    Default Problem getting on the net trough wlan

    Hi, i have a problem with my wireless card when im using Backtrack 2 final. Anyway. in the beta, the card wouldnt work at all but now it is working to 95%.

    iwconfig wlan0 essid yadayada key 456785678998
    iwconfig wlan0 ap mac adress here, is that correct?
    ifconfig wlan0 up and we have green light on the card

    firefox - couldnt find google.com.

    What is going on here?

    Did you check to see if you're getting a valid IP address, Default Gateway, DNS servers?

    I bet you didn't.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    somtimes on the road I run into situations where I must assign myself a ip adress and a default gateway like streaker was telling you. Can you ping google from the command line?

    Then it is obvious why you cannot connect to the net

    You have only done half of the commands

    There are many threads and tutorials that specifically cover this, try reading a few of them and if you still are having problems, then post, giving full details including hardware, commands, errors etc.
