Hello from australia, I've been playing around with bt5 for two weeks or so and i'm at a loss about a problem I am currently facing.
When I first tried bt5 I installed it onto a spare partition as I didn't want to wait for my AWUS036H to arrive and my laptops inbuilt card supported packet injection. It all worked fine. I've since uninstalled and reinstalled bt5 as a virtual machine using virtual box,. My 36H arrived so I passed it through to backtrack using virtual box then started my vm.
bt5 detects the interface as wlan0 and I can run airodump-ng with no problems at all and successfully sniff/capture/inject packets but for some reason WICD can't detect any wireless networks. Any ideas at all as to what the cause is?
