    Default Realtek RTL8191SU drivers on BackTrack 3

    Hi. I'm new to using linux in general. Fortunately, I know a bit to go around.

    Anyway, I'm trying to install the drivers for my Realtek RTL8191SU device.

    I found a website with the linux drivers, downloaded them. But now I need help as to how to install them on BackTrack 3. I have BackTrack 3 on a CD-R.

    So I load the Live-CD. Here are the steps that were included in the Driver.rar.

    Part 1: make 8712 USB Linux driver

    (1) step1: uncompress the “rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.6.xxxx.2010 xxxx.tar.gz” file. (in “driver” directory)
    > tar zxvf rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.6.0006.20100 226.tar.gz

    (2) step2: make 8712 USB driver module
    > make
    (3) step3: clean the operation environment
    > ./clean
    (4) step4: insert 8712 USB modules
    > insmod 8712u.ko

    (5) step5: enable wlan0 interface
    > ifconfig wlan0 up
    (6) step6: setup IP address
    > ifconfig wlan0

    step1: Site Survey
    > iwlist wlan0 scan

    (2) step2: Connect to AP
    > iwconfig wlan0 essid “xxx”

    I'm not too sure how to install these drivers on to back-track. I can open the bash command window, after that i'm clueless. If someone can tell me exactly what to do, that'd be great. I want to start cracking in to some networks.

    Backtrack 3 is not supported here. Upgrade to BT4.
    Oh and we don't teach how to break the law ... so you won't be "cracking in to some networks" neither.
    Back|track giving machine guns to monkeys since 2007 !

    Word to the wise:
    See also the links below.
    To be successful here you should read all of the following.
    If you are new to Back|Track
    Back|Track Wiki
    Failure to do so will probably get your threads deleted or worse.
