Smile Backtrack5, WiFi problem


Hi!! everyone I'm a new in this forum and I would just thanx those who spend time to make it possible and still be online and to those who send answers to any question about troubleshootings under the wonderful world of Linux. That was My Introduction as a newbie and it's time now to say I have a problem
under backtrack 5 what's going on I do airmon-ng and the only things i see are 3 words like driver no explicite don't see my ipw2200 nothing more. And I did try iwconfig and I got "no wireless extensions" behind lo and eth0. that'it . The last time i used my backtrack it was working.
Don't ask me why now it doesn't work I don't know!!?

If You have something to help me would be cool thanx!!
peewee2.

Backtrack is a distro for security EXPERTS by network EXPERTS for EXPORTS

there is a VERY steep learning curve

First
What has changed ?

you say it was working and now it is not

so what did you change ?


If you built a kernel-mod for your wireless card and you installed or updated to a new kernel ,
then you will need to rebuild the kernel-mod you custom built .
