Can someone help me out on this? I can't configure BT4 for wireless.

I have two different WIFI cards. One is a broadcom that might work. The other is a wg511t atheros chipset that I know definitely works.


Does anyone have a link specifically for this?


Edit: I just figured it out as soon as I posted this. Sorry :dry:

awe man, Ndiswrapper is lame with BT4. BT4 is an awesome distro for wireless hacking! BCM can now inject but you need to patch and recompile te kernel, which i think Off-Sec actually did. You should run lspci and get the actual information of the Atheros card. and use modprobe -l to list the driver modules available. then install it with modprobe as well. Finding out stuff in manpages ias just discouraging to people new to Linux so i never refer them to it, if you do a simple Google search you can find out more about Linux and Wireless (but you said you figured it out already).

Yeah, It wasn't any of that stuff really...

You have to issue two commands to enable you networking in BT4.

/etc/init.d/networking start

and

/etc/init.d/wicd <-- for wireless

Is BT4 still what most people use for a CD bootable Linux? I haven't used one it a long long time (the last one I used was Auditor or something like that).

I can not for the life of me get that to work haha! When i tried to get the GUI .deb to work, it says it is missing dependencies, but i already installed the file. I have a linksys wmp110 range plus wireless card and still have the cd. I googled the hell outa this and apparently people tell me there is no Linux based driver so i need to emulate the xp or vista one(i have both) Any ideas?
