I am trying to use Backtrack 3 to crack WEP protected networks. I've already downloaded the iso and setup my USB drive to boot-up the OS. I have no problems booting, but my internal wifi card is not recognized. I have a Dell Studio 1535 laptop that has a "Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini Card". This uses a Broadcom chipset, so I believe it should be compatible with aircrack.
This article tells me that Broadcom has released Linux based drivers that work with my "1397" card. I need help incorporating this driver into Backtrack build, if possible. If not, then maybe load the driver manually each time I boot it?
This is the page that the article sent me to, where I downloaded the 32 bit driver, which comes in a .tar.gz file. I tried to follow the readme, but couldn't get it to work since I'm a Linux noob. I can't get past the make -C /lib/..... part. I would imagine the method I'm using would have to be repeated each time I want to boot, but if it's possible, I'd like to just include the driver on the USB stick.
I apologize in advance if any of the stuff I'm looking for has already been answered elsewhere, but any help will be much appreciated.
