    Default Wireless not working

    So I just installed backtrack and got the ethernet working, now I'm trying to get the wifi working. I have an Atheros AR928x. Anyone have any ideas on how to get it working? I have BackTrack 4 with no updates or anything. Any help will be appreciated.

    What have you tried so far to get it working?

    Since I just spent ages last night working this out for wep, this is what I did.

    Try following the 'start networking' tut in the 'how to section'.

    Check
    /etc/network/interfaces file is correct then

    root@bt: update-rc.d networking defaults
    root@bt: sshd-generate
    root@bt: update-rc.d ssh defaults

    restart

    Fill in static IP details in wicd -->advanced section --> select WEP shared/restricted (insert wep ..if wep key)

    Well, I've tried installing some MadWifi drivers, but that was no good, I was gonna try using NDISWrapper, but I haven't had a chane to yet and I'm about to go to work. Do you have any suggestions that might help me?

    I'm not completely sure what I did, but my wireless is working now. Problem right now is that I can't use WPA any ideas on how to get that working?

    How are you configuring it to use WPA? What errors are you getting?
