im running the BT iso on VMware and i cant get my freaken card to connect..
its weird ifconfig -a and then the interface comes up as lo
and my ethernet comes up as eth0
i type in ifconfig lo up

Only USB wifi cards are supported in VMWare
damn.. wel then ill just go buy one then whats a good usb card that works the best and is the most popular.. i looked on the compatibilty site and their is to much to look at kinda
That's interesting. I am sitting here connected to my hotels WLAN using an Intel 4965 AG wireless card on BT3 which is installed on my hard drive.

I have not had success in connecting with my WPA Enterprise network at work but I can connect to both my WPA-PSK networks at home.
As far as I know the interface lo is the loopback interface and can't be used to connect externally, but then again I may be wrong. It would not be the first and most likely not the last time.
Are you using VmWare also DaKahuna?
NoCover - I have an Alfa WIFI USB, it works great with BT3... Also I'm pretty sure all USB wifi adaptors will work with VMWare (though someone may correct me on this)
No, I am not using VMware. I am dual booting.
