    Default weird problem connecting to wep

    hello,

    i just hacked my WEP encryption using backtrack r2

    than when i tried to connect using wicd it cant optain ip address...

    i tried to connect in windows and it worked(i just used pw and hit connect).

    so,

    - i used correct pw
    - no mac filter is active
    - gateway has active dhcp server

    ..i dont know what else to do.. i searched in the forum and just found that it could be a problem of backtrack r2 ?

    pls help

    If you have an Atheros WiFi card, with athk9 drivers, I have the same issue.
    One guy told me to switch network manager and another one told me to downgrade to BackTrack 5R1 :-)

    and i am advicing you to enable the static ip and static domain mode.
    set your static
    ip to: 192.163.1.1
    netmask: 255.255.255.0
    gateway: 192.163.1.1

    then the domain: 192.163.1.1
    the search domain: 192.163.1.1

    try if it works.

    Question Re: weird problem connecting to wep

    Yes i have atheros wifi card. It cannot get ip adress if you are using WEP encryption. I changed my modem to WPA1/WPA2 and it works now. I tried to install another wireless manager program but all programs in linux comes with .tgz extension. I am newbie and i couldn't install that.

    Yes, i have many problems !

    Try installing Network manager..search the repos:
    aptitude search network-manager

    If in repos, you should have something like this: network-manager, network-manager-gnome, network-manager-kde, etc..Just aptitude install network-manager network-manager-gnome (if gnome version), or change to kde accordingly.

    It will automatically uninstall all wicd since only one can be working...No need to unisntall wicd.

    Luck.

    Try using wpa-wpa2 and see if it works..There must be something with wep and ath9k driver...If it works, then you might want to upgrade to BT5r3..

    To upgrade to btr3: http://www.backtrack-linux.org/backt...acktrack-5-r3/

    i'm with bt5r3 , i'm starting to think that bt5 can't connect to a wep crypted key , because i can connect to a wpa one

    i did set the wep to hex , i even tried using static ip , wicd showed ( connected to (my network essid) at ip adress (xx.xx.xxxx) ) but i still can't connect to internet , so i mouved to network manager and i didn't work there too

    There's something wrong with the driver they've been packaging in Backtrack. Hopefully they fix this by 5r4 or 6r1
