    Default "network stop/waiting" When Running "service start networking" or "/etc/init.d/net.."

    tl;dr: When I start networking it shows networking stop/waiting and I'm not using any Virtual Machine. Device is listed under lsusb and ifconfig.

    I downloaded Backtrack 5 R3 and whenever I connect my Alfa AWUS036NH wireless adapter, or use my laptops integrated wireless, and start networking it just says network stop/waiting.

    Here are my results for the following:

    I can set the device into monitor and crack networks normally, but just the internet doesn't work. I've researched articles but they are all regarding VMWare issues, I have BT installed on a USB stick.

    Default Re: "network stop/waiting" When Running "service start networking" or "/etc/init.d/ne

    I'm having the exact same issue out of the blue - My USB BT5r3 stick had been able to connect in the past, but now it does the same thing as the other poster suggests. Works great for anything local, but try to access anything online and it just times out. It will connect via WICD just fine to the various access points that I've tried but will not send / receive once connected - This had worked before a couple of days ago with no problems. I'm not sure what changed. I'm on the road today, but I will try to re-install the iso to this stick when I get home and see if that changes anything.

    Default Re: "network stop/waiting" When Running "service start networking" or "/etc/init.d/ne

    Running the following command will allow me to ping google.com and it will allow me to run apt-get update, but I still get "networking stop/waiting" when I run "etc/init.d/networking start" or "service networking start". Firefox freezes when I run it in terminal and/or through the GUI.

    Code:
    dhclient wlan0
    This command fixes my issue with not being to update apt-get and its repositories, so hopefully it does the same for others with this issue. If anyone figures out how to get networking started correctly with this wireless card then please let me know. Since I am able to update packages I think I will also be able to use wget to install the compat wireless drivers, I'll update this thread once that is done to let you know if these drivers work better for me.
