    Question Enabling wireless network interfaces?

    I starting out using backtrack on a live CD, and I would like to do some tests on the local wifi network, but I can't enable wireless networking. I tried start networking, service networking start, and /etc/init.d/networking start, but all these result in the output "networking stop/waiting".

    Running iwconfig produces the following output:
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    eth0      no wireless extensions.
    I normally use Ubuntu, so I know there is usually a wlan0, but I can't find it. When I open Wicd, I just see "No wireless networks found".
    My wireless card is identified as "Broadcom Corporation BCM43224 802.11a/b/g/n".

    How can I enable wireless?
