When i login to back track 5 r1 and put command to show interface card it shows black how evr im connected to internet on wifi

airmong-ng

that is the confusion the "text speak"
i had NO idea what a "c" interface card was

please SPELL out the FULL word
so you are calling aircrack

but you are asking about the physical card
it should be listed in
Code:

lspci
if you need help with aircrack look at the man page or help page

Code:

airmong-ng --help
-- or --
man airmong-ng

you might also want to read the BT tutorials on the web page

and you might want to start here:

but remember that bt was built FOR SECURITY EXPERTS for use BY SECURITY EXPERTS

there is a VERY big and VERY LARGE learning curve .

is BT installed to the drive
OR
is it running in a VM on windows 7
if a vm then you will NEVER get "wi-fi" to work



BT was designed for use BY EXPERTS in the security field
for use by EXPERIENCED network administrators and system penetrating testers

as such YOU must manually install the needed software for any hardware you have

it was never intended to be used by a " new to linux " person

it is like asking a small cessna ( propeller) pilot ,to take off and land a f16 on an aircraft-carrier

or drive a formula one race car in a `500 race BEFORE they get there drivers license .


it is NOT a recommended distro for a "new to Linux" person

BUT if you want to go for it then

have a red at the BT forum
http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forums/
and post a question there


as par installing a driver for a
( this is a built in card ? )
http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/...ss-n-1030.html


and have a read through the FAQ
http://www.backtrack-linux.org/wiki/index.php/FAQ
