you might not want to bump your own post
Also it was only just over an hour , we volunteer here

all you managed to do was remove your post from the zero reply list
a list that keeps new posts near the top of the new posts . So that they can be easily found

have you read the tutorials on the offensive security web site ?
but note most are for the old and dead bt4 - you need to be able to port them to the just old bt5

And have you read through the bt forum ? ( on the bt site )
but note bt5 is based on the now unsupported ubuntu 10 and if you "dist upgrade" as the pop up windows asks
you will kill most of the software installed .

support for bt has basically ended
they released a new os "kali"

Sometimes "no wireless networks" will show if the network is hidden. I don't know if your application sees hidden networks. Hopefully that helps.

You can have accessed the hidden network through windows by identifying the network name and entering the password even if it's hidden ... I've done that in Windows Vista. I then searched for a wireless hidden network on a Linux sysystem and wasn't able to access it until I revealed the network. Some day I will be able to do more in Linux than I did in Windows. Either way, you can go to the wireless security settings to see if it's visibile or hidden.

ermanovito
is your hardware supported by the rather OLD bt5
BT5 is old enough that new hardware will NOT be supported

It would be useful to know what kind of wireless chipset you have. It's possible the drivers were not set up at time of install.

Run the command lspci in a terminal; that should report that information. Then post the output regarding the wireless here, being sure to surround it with "code" tags, which become available when you click the "Go Advanced" button at to the right of the "Post Quick Reply" button at the bottom of the reply window.

Also, what everyone else said about bumping your own thread.
