Hi, I am new to this forum and to linux, so if I post with bad etiquette or anything, I apologize.
Alright, here is my problem. I am running Backtrack 5 r3 fully installed on my hdd, with a TP-link TL-WN722N USB wireless card. I know that Backtrack detects my device because it shows up as 'Atheros AR9271' when I run lsusb. However, when I open wicd, it shows that there are no networks available, and when I run iwconfig I get:
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
When I run airmon-ng I get:
Interface Chipset Driver
but it doesn't show anything else. I have the AR9271 driver. Also, my wireless config file is empty. I am pretty sure that is part of the problem, but I think there may be more to it as well. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
