I'm having trouble establishing a network connection with my system. I just installed Bactrack2. My system is a dual boot system (WinXP/Linux). I've read through all the threads as far as getting both wired and wireless devices to work and can't get anywhere.
First when when I tried the command
ifconfig eth0 up
it responds with : SIOCSIFFLAGS: Device or resource busy
Most of the threads I've read advises to turn of Plug-N-Play in the BIOS. I've done that and still no luck.
The second half of my question has to do with the built-in internal wireless. The wireless adapter is an Intel Pro/2200. When I type the command:
iwconfig it returns this response:
lo no wireless extensions
eth0 no wireless extensions
I would appreciate any help anyone out there can share.
dd if=/dev/swc666 of=/dev/wyze
Thanks for the assist swc666.
Tried Googling for a solution to research how to get my eth0 to work and still no luck. Even looked at /proc/interrupts and the results were as follows:
0 - timer
1 - i8042
2 - cascade
8 - rtc
9 - acpi
12 - i8042
14 - ide0
even tried installing tg3-3.81c-1.src.rpm and still couldn't get it to work. I've read through the slackware text and couldnt' find anything there either.
