    Default [H] Wireless won't connect when in Backtrack

    So I got an early copy of Backtrack R3, and decided to run apt-get upgrade apt-get update. In the middle of one of them, it just stopped updating. After that my wireless connection would not work. Made sure that it still works, and went and tried it in windows 7 and it works just fine. So then i deceided to install the current version on BT R3. Fresh download. Still no connection with Wireless. Now i go and connect a wired cable and that works just fine. Wired works, wiresless after 2 installs still doesnt work. I would give you an error message if i had one. All it says is that it can't find the servers. Anyone have any idea what to do?

    It might be helpful if you provide details regarding your wireless card, your environment and some bash outputs.

    I am having troubles accessing your link.
    If you do not know the wireless card you use we can not offer much assistance. How are you trying to connect ? Do you use the network manager ? Have you tried setting up a manual connection ?
