Hi, I recently installed Backtrack 5 R3 on my Toshiba NB255 laptop.

I can connect to my wireless network with wicd, but theres no internet access. Ping fails to connect and firefox can't connect to any servers either. After doing iwconfig and ifconfig, I can't see anything out of the ordinary, no dropped or erroneous packets according to ifconfig.

When I connect through ethernet to my router, wicd stalls at the ip assignment step.

I've tried starting networking through
start networking
/etc/init.d/networking start
, but I can't get it to work.

I'm getting good signal, so that isn't it.

Again, I successfully connect to the network, just no internet. Any ideas?
