Connecting Backtrack to the internet


I am trying to connect to the internet using Backtrack 3. My wireless adapter (WMP54G Linksys, Ralink chipset) is detected, but I cannot find any APs nearby. I used KWiFiManager, but I cannot find any wireless routers. I tried it with Ubuntu, and can successfully connect to my router.

iwconfig (sorry I cannot copy the output because I can't save anything to my USB drive on Backtrack):

lo no wireless

wlan0 RT61

eth0 no wireless
eth1 no wireless

You may need to make an entry in '/etc/network/interfaces'.
