I've got an issue for you, which is gonna sound probably stupid.. to the most of you here, but everybody with his talent, right? Ok, check this out, I've installed BackTrack 2 in my USB flash drive, so, I boot it from there without having any problems. My laptop is an HP Pavillion dv2000, and it's wireless network card an Intel 3945ABG PRO (as usual..). I performed the following steps (after I read it from another web page) in order to enable my 3945 card:
After this I run the Wireless Assistant 0.5.5 Application, and voila.. I can find some wireless networks...but I cannot connect to them, I mean, I click on one..and no matter if I enter my network's key it says all the time 'Connection Failed'. I don't know if whatever I told ya above is actually required but I thought to write the whole story once.Code:Open a console and type: cd /usr/src/drivers/ipw3945-1.2.0 Hit enter then type load Hit enter Your Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG can now be found at eth1 For Those of you that have backtrack2 installed on your hdd. To save typing all that in every time you restart. Open a console and type alias 3945="cd /usr/src/drivers/ipw3945-1.2.0" Hit enter now all you have to do to enable your Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG is type 3945 Hit enter load Hit enter replace 3945 with whatever keyword you want as I only used it as an example
Thanks in advance anyway..

Another question, we're talking about WEP.. my network uses WPA2.
Is there any change in the command?
(Also, I just did what you told me and when I'm writing the network key it says:
"" -bash: syntax error near unexpected token ')' "" )
Ok, I figured out a couple of beginner things..
I'm at this point:
My only problem now is that when I run the wpa_passphrase myNetworkName wpaPassphrase command it says to me this : Passphrase must be 8..63 characters.
My network's key is 42 characters. How do you explain that ?
Hi Im having a strange network connecting problem. Im running back Track 2 and Im having problem connecting to a specific wlan.
For Example if I use the Wireless assistant i can see my wlan, and when i try to connect with the correct WEP key it says "connection failed". Note I get the exact same problem trying to connect to another unprotected wlan.
I've also tried to connect just though a shell (the "pro" way) and it doesen't work either.
Now to the wierd part: When i boot BT2 it searches for wlans to connect to and it finds one( the unprotected i mentioned earlier) and connects. So if i try to connect manually to any wlan it doesen't work, but if it finds one itself(unprotected) it works!!
I think i an having the same problem
I have rebooted my system and used the commands that -=Xploitz=- recommends, but they do not work. Any other ideas ?
HOPE THIS MAY BE OF USE !!
I don't know if you have found a fix to your problems, but this is how I connect to my WEP network.
Device: Dell Latitude D620
OS: Backtrack 2 Final (installed to HDD)
Ethernet Adapter: Intel 3945ABG
1. Log into Backtrack 2 as ROOT.
2. Go to:
Menu > Backtrack > Radio Network Analysis > 80211 > ALL > IPW3945
3. With the Konsole window still open, load Wireless Assistant:
Menu > Internet > Wireless Assistant
4. Find your network & click "Connect", either connect using your already configured connection or go through the wizard & create a new connection.
NOTE !! - making sure that you've got everything corrent. SSID, WEP Key, Open/Shared Key etc.
5. If it fails to connect, close Wireless Assistant & load IPW3945 again, step 2.
6. Load Wireless Assistant again (step 3) & click "Connect" again.
The reason why I've done these simple notes, is because sometimes my adapter wouldn't connect to my wireless network the first time I loaded the IPW3945 driver, but it would the 2nd time. Simple but it worked for me.
I apologize if these notes are of novice standard, I am fairly new to the Backtrack OS.
