    Default Atheros wireless card problem


    I have the backtrack 2 live CD running on my laptop (no problems there, good job guys!)

    The only problem is that it doesn't seem to load my wireless card correctly.

    I have a satelite pro A200 with an Atheros card, and whenever I use ifconfig or iwconfig there is no wireless device listed.

    I tried re-installing the madwifi drivers, but to no avail, and lspci lists the following:

    04:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications, Inc. Unknown device 001c (rev 01)

    which suggests that it is recognised as a pci device...

    I'm fairly new to linux and all the above was what i found by trawling the net...

    can anybody help?

    "'ve picked up a bit of an attitude. Still curious and willing to learn, I hope. "
