i have already dont the switch mode but dosnt seem to be working
have you done and in what way does it not work?
What kind - when it is plugged it, what does lsusb tell you about it? What comes up in dmesg?
Belkin Wireless G USB Network Adaptor
Which one? Though it is usually better to troubleshoot one device at a time. Pick one.
Maybe i should switch distros?
Backtrack is a security/penetration distro - something of a crackers
Changing to a more general distro would be recommended unless you are a security professional.
Your other post
is also about your modem. In that post you reveal that your distro is not recognising anything plugged into USB ports - if so, then there is no reason to expect any
usb device to work.
To be sure, check lsusb and dmesg output after the device you are testing is plugged in.
Backtrack 4 uses the 2.6.34 kernel, which aught to be hotplug-capable. That does not mean the devs have enabled that feature. Other backtrack installation type posts suggest that it should automount usb devices plugged in - try with a flash drive as well, booting with the device already plugged in.
Looking further - the cricket A600 I find comes with a built-in flash card reader. I expect linux to see it as a UMS device ani you have to tell it otherwise in a process called "flipping".
