    please include all the important information when asking questions, as instructed in the sticky's.
    Sorry, Broadcom 802.11n
    I type airmon-ng on my terminal,

    and the chipset was unknow.

    Then I created a mon0 interface to sniffing packets from my wireless router
    and there was a warning that I have to kill some tasks.

    I think I have to buy a USB Wireless Adapter.

    My question is I have to disable my wlan0(my internal wifi card) when I plug in the USB wireless Adapter???
    Thanks.

    please post output:
    lspci | grep -i network
    Then the first numbers at left, in this format: xx:xx.x (ex. 0c:00.0, 0f:00.0, etc) use them and type:
    lspci -vvs xx:xx.x at the end you can see what driver the kernel is using (the -vv is a doble "v" to be very verbose)
    Post it.

    Please, again, go to this link: http://mmc.geofisica.unam.mx/debian/...mware-nonfree/ and download the file: firmware-ipw2x00_0.36_all.deb

    The file .deb is installed this way: dpkg -i firmware-ipw2x00_0.36_all.deb

    That's all you need.

    Sorry, but I do not understand..Please open your own thread to get the help you need. This one is about a ip2200 Intel from Dazzcoll, who by the way invaded a old threat, he should have open his own, but in this case he had the same Intel Pro Wireless 2200.

    In your case is a Broadcom..

    I'm done with this thread about ipw2200..

    I am also new to Linux, but familiar with drivers and firmware on windows. I have a Acer Aspire 3680-2682,where I cannot find or determine what firmware/driver needed for my wireless card for backtrack 5 R3. It is installed on the laptop not virtual or usb. Since laptop is out of date, not getting too much help on which driver will work, it is the 802.11b/g wireless card. Any help or suggestions? When I use the iwconfig command I can see...

    wlan0 IEEE802.11bg ESSID off/any
    mode: managed access point: not-associated tx-power= 20dBm
    retry long limit 7 RTS thr: off Fragment thr: off
    encryption key: off
    power management: off

    eth0 no wireless extensions
