    Default Back Track 5R3 Wifi-Problem

    Hi guys,

    I installed Backtrack 5 R3 on Windows XP 32bit machine. I followed the instruction to get it it running with wifi from here:
    http://www.backtrack-linux.org/wiki/...orking_to_work

    But the thing doesn't works.
    Then I tried with Wicd Network Manager, but same problem, it doesn't works.
    I started Wireshark to analyze what is going on and found out, that source and destination has the same IP,
    what to do, how to solve the problem?

    Hello,

    When you say installed on a Windows XP 32-bit machine - do you mean you downloaded the VM image of BTr3 and run it inside VMWare for instance? If that's the case then what is the External USB adapter you are using, if it's not then what is your setup exactly?

    I downloaded an ISO-Image-File of BT5R3, created an ISO-ImageCD and installed it directly on the HD of my Laptop, if start now my Laptop, I can choose between BackTrack and Windows. I do not use Virtualbox etc.

    OK, what's the laptop/network card inside, is it supported? are you using an external card? I can't quite make out the images you've attached (they're too small)

    What's the output of iwconfig? When you say
    But the thing doesn't works
    what doesn't work? You can't obtain IP address, you can't see any wireless networks etc.?

    First of all you need to know if you have Network-Manager or Wicd..By default, BT5 installs WICD...Starting the network services are different:
    Wicd ------------./etc/init.d/wicd start
    Network Manager -------> /etc/init.d/networking start

    How to know which one you have installed: open up a terminal and type: aptitude show wicd or aptitude show network-manager. Read info...

    Once started the networking services, you need a valid IP fron DHCP server: Open up a terminal and type: dhclient "your interface"...Ex. dhclient wlan0

    Now you will have a valid IP. See if you are connected.

    Please, post the hardware used as to Wifi device, USB wifi device (if used), etc...Need to specify exactly what you have.

    remember this: "Wifi device means Brand and CHIPSET"..here the critical info is Chipset..

    Luck.

    By the way, pictures are too small...
