I am a long time windows user and work as a support technician.
I have scoured the internet but cannot resolve this issue.
I have an old toshiba satellite m40x which ran ubuntu just fine (wifi worked).
I am a bit of a linux noob and I have recently decided to play around with backtrack.
I installed bt5r3 and booted it up ok but I cannot connect to any wireless networks.
root@bt:~# lspci | grep -i network
06:02.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2915ABG [Calexico2] Network Connection (rev 05)
I have tried extracting ipw2200 firmware to /lib/firmware and a couple other things with no luck.
I have now fresh installed bt5r3 and would be appreciative if someone could help me get the wifi working.
