    I neade to knoe if the last version of backtrack il the 5 r2 and if that supports:
    1)The ZD111B IEE 802.11 b+g USB Adapter i think yes i remenbar i was useing the backtarck 4 live cd
    2)If now support instead olso the AR929X Atheros (taht is my notebook wifi) i remembar the 4 didend support it!
    2)If the last backtrack support my other usb wifi pen Netgear NETGEAR WN111v2 .
    Last request...if the actualy backtrack version supports all this three "drivers" putting them in monitor mode taht allways works on live ?And that,as for bktrack 4 is a CD or DVD?

    I cannot answer positively as I do not have those hardware however it is not automatic that if BT4 supports your card, BT5 will also support.

    You probably are better off using compat-wireless driver..available here:

    Supported hardware list is here:

    ok thank's i will give a look olso if i think that,if the cd is a cd live so if i use backtrack live i dont neade any drivers becaause i supose that drivers must allready stay in the backtrack (if is a live cd as u know i just must load the dvd from cd so olso with a computer without any hhd on it).
    When i will back in Italy i will try with the WN111.I haave reade something abot that usb pen aand some patch to install on backtrack 4 so i wos woundering if with backtrack 5 r2 that i think is the last version i evan dont neade more that patches but the usb Netgear WN111 (not the WR111) will run without any problems.
    Take care
