Cool Connection Failed W/ Wpa In Backtrack 3 Not Windows


CAN ANYONE TELL ME A FEW REASONS MY WIRELESS CONNECTION FAILS IN BACKTRACK?
I HAVE AN IBM T-42P THINKPAD (1.8Ghz, 2 GIG RAM, 80 GIG HD)
I'VE GOT IT SET UP TO DUAL BOOT BETWEEN XP (YUCK, BUT CHRYSLER TRAINING ONLY ALLOWS FOR I EXPLORER AND BACKTRACK 3 (BETA) I HAD BACKTRACK 2 ON IT BUT 3 WAS JUST BEGGING TO BE INSTALLED
EVERYTHING WORKED JUST FINE WITH WEP SECURITY IN BT2, AND BT3 EVEN DETECTS MY CHANGE TO WPA PSK, BUT WHEN I TRY TO CONNECT, IT JUST SAYS CONNECTION FAILED.
I'M USING A D-LINK DWL-G650 WLAN CARD AND A WAL-MART CISCO ROUTER AND IN WINDOWS (XP SP2) EVERYTHING WORKS GREAT (USING IT RIGHT NOW)
BUT BACKTRACK 3 DOESN'T LIKE IT BT2 DOESN'T EVEN RECOGNISE IT. (THE WPA)
I TRIED AT LEAST 30 TIMES TONIGHT TO CONNECT TO REMOTE EXPLOIT BUT FIREFOX AND IE CAN'T FIND THE ADDRESS. I'LL TRY AGAIN WITH THEM LATER BUT I HATE WINDOWS AND CAN'T WAIT TO CHECK OUT MY NEWLY INSTALLED NET CAPABILITIES W/ BT3 ANY HELP WILL BE PUT TO GOOD USE
THANKS

You are not endearing yourself to LQ at all.

Not only did you post in all caps, but you triple posted.

Read the rules you agreed to when you signed up, and also you
can edit your original post rather than starting another one.

This is not a good way to start here, and don't give excuses.

YOU'RE A SENSITIVE BOY AREN'T YOU TOMMY?

THIS CAPITOL LETTER THING IS RIDICULOUS I DIDN'T KNOW THE BIGGER LETTERS HURT YOUR EARS!
AND WHAT IF MY LAPTOP HAS TURETTS' SYNDROME?
AREN'T YOU BEING DISCRIMINATORY?
AND BY THE WAY, THANKS FOR HELPING ME WITH YOUR FANTASTIC SOLUTIONS
IF ALL YOU HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT IS FONT TYPES OR SIZES, YOU SERIOUSLY NEED A HOBBY OR SOMETHING.
AND THE TRIPLE POST WAS BECAUSE I GOT ZERO ANSWERS, NOT EVEN SOMEBODY SAYING THEY COULDN'T HELP, BUT HEY, WOW I'M NOT MAKING A GOOD IMPRESSION BY TYPING TO BIG FOR YOUR OBVIOUSLY DELICATE AUDITORY PASSAGES WHICH HAVE BEEN VIOLATED BY THE OBSCENE SIZE OF THE LETTERS ON THE SCREEN--- sorry

Hahahaha, well done by Joshua, your outburst was accompanied by the right words, I'm glad you didn't just swear and look like a tool.

Anyways, sorry to bump an old thread.

YOUR PROBLEM: I don't exactly know what's wrong... could you try to explain more, and I'll see if I can help or point you towards people who can.

Cheers,
Project7.

Thanks for responding, I have since figured out much about using wireless (and etiquette). The link from Mr. Hill was at least a top 5 funniest things I have seen in a long while. Got my wpa issues sorted out for the most part.
Mr. Hill, no excuses here, just an apology for being out of line. Can't expect help if the context, or good attitude isn't present up front. Hope no offense was taken in my reply.

Joshua,

Apology accepted. I hope you will adhere more closely to the LQ rules.
Remember, as Buzby said, "Rules are cool!"

You will get a proper response from me when you post a proper question ...
every time. And I'll go the extra mile to help you if I'm able.

If you still can't get your wirless working with WPA, give us an update
as to what you've done, and what's happening now. We'll get it going.

Brilliant, I have brought you two together.

That's great, I know I am going to have a few questions which need answers, so far I haven't been able to find much help elsewhere.

EDIT: Oh yeah, don't worry, I plan to SEARCH before I ask the questions... "solution"

outcome?

Joshua,
As I understand it you have figured out the Backtrack 3 WPA problem? I have been cruising the net for the answer all night and haven't come up with much. How'd you get it to work?
