    Wink Problem With finding my wireless card!

    Hey Guys,
    I've download and installed backtrack 5 r3 today, and I don't know how to set my wireless connection up because when I open WICD network manager its coming up with an error!
    My wireless card is Atheros AR9485WB-EG!

    When I type ifconfig command in terminal it gives me:

    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 08:00:27:6a:4a:8b
    inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
    inet6 addr: fe80::a00:27ff:fe6a:4a8b/64 Scope:Link

    RX bytes:2311220 (2.3 MB) TX bytes:339809 (339.8 KB)

    lo Link encap:Local Loopback

    collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
    RX bytes:32017 (32.0 KB) TX bytes:32017 (32.0 KB)
    and with iwconfig it gives me:

    lo no wireless extensions.

    eth0 no wireless extensions.
    I would appreciate if anyone can help me with this problem.

    How about finding out if wireless card is up and if module was loaded for that wifi card?

    Did you started networking services after starting X server?

    Need to do first..Sorry, in Linux world some things are not "plug and play", "One click will do it" or "Automatically will be recognized and driver loaded"...
