Hi there,

I'm really new at Linux and using the Alfa AWUS036NHR, I'm trying to get reaver to work and to get a succesful handshake using BackTrack 5 R3 (32Bit or 64Bit, GNOME or KDE).

I'm using BT5 on VMWare Fusion 5 on a MacBook Air (2010) running 10.8.2

I would like to know how I can update/replace the current compat-wireless/realtek drivers with newer ones?

Right now the current version on the Realtek website is:
Version: 3.4.4_4749 | UpdateTime: 2012/9/12

Right now BT5-R3_64Bit_Gnome is telling me I'm using (lshw -C Network):
driverversion = 3.2.6

How do I update/replace these drivers, step by step? I would really appreciate the help
