Hello everyone. I am stuggling for three days with installing the drivers for my Intel® Centrino® Advanced-N 6235 wireless onboard card. Because the drivers for this card are not included with BackTrack (I have installed BackTrack 5 R3 persistent on a usb and am running GNOME and 64 bits), I have downloaded them from where intels site sen me: http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/iwlwifi
The packet I downloaded was iwlwifi-6000g2b-ucode-18.104.22.168.tgz. I unpacked the file using
Next I followed the instuctions I found here: http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...ad.php?t=31408
tar -xvzf iwlwifi-6000g2b-ucode-22.214.171.124.tgz
So I opened the new folder and copied the .ucode file to the /lib/filmware folder
Now when I try to activate it this happends: ifconfig wlan0 up
cp iwlwifi-6000g2b-6.ucode /lib/filmware
After that still nothing works. I still can not find any networks in Wicd. I left everything at the default setting after installation of BackTrack. Wired internet works fine BTW.
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Unknown error 132
I have also read that I should check that the button combination to turn the antenna on or off is activated, but when I press the combination (Fn + F11) nothing happends. The wireless antenna light stays off.
This is what I got after I "installed" the driver:
Eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:11:22:33:44:55 # My normal MAC, but I thought it might be smarter to not put that here

If someone could help me, that would be wonderful! Cause I suppose there is no 'apt-get install ***' that does the magic for me
lo no wireless extensions.
