    Default cannot detect wireless networks on backtrack5 R3 gnome

    hello, I am running backtrack5r3 on VMware. The wireless card has been working fine up to now on it. But, as of today, when I open my wireless network manager, it detects no wireless networks. I have used it in the past few days without any problems and i haven't changed any settings or anything that would of changed this.

    I tried
    root@evilbox:~# dpkg-reconfigure wicd
    root@evilbox:~# update-rc.d wicd defaults

    But, even though this stopped the error coming up when starting my wireless network manager, i am still unable to detect any.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Take a look in the "How To make a thread" sticky and come back with more details.
