    Default Installing rt73 WL-167G drivers

    Hi, I'm a complete newbie to compiling and installing stuff in Linux and I need to install some drivers for my WL-167G usb dongle and I heard I needed to install an rt73 driver. I am using BackTrack 3 beta and I really need to get this installed because if I don't I wont be able to connect to a wireless network. Can anyone show me how? I have checked several help files but they are very vague.

    The rt73 driver is on BT3.

    Yes, BT3 has rt73 already, but check it just to make sure by typing modinfo rt73, also do:

    1) airdriver remove 25
    2) airdriver remove 31
    3) airdriver install 31
    4) modprobe rt73

    Hope that helps
