Can you answer why you use BackTrack instead of suitable desktop distro like Mint, Ubuntu, Fedora, Fusion, Debian, PCLinuxOS..? Also these distros have more chance to get wireless going on first try. You may think this reply doesn't help you but in reality it helps because you will move to more suitable distribution for your needs that will cause less pain using it.
