Then I've rebooted Back Track again and the error was fixed. I will be really happy, if someone tell me how to update the firmware drivers (I think this is why it's not working) I realized that I have to have the drivers for my wireless card, just because EVERY SINGLE tutorial and friend of mine DIDN'T WORK, so this is how I've done it... Copied the file "iwlwifi-2030-6.ucode" to File System -- /lib/firmware (You can get this file from - I dont remember did I have to install it so anyway if it doesnt work type "dpkg -i --force-all firmware-iwlwifi_0.40_all.deb" in Terminal (You can get this file from (Keep in mind you have to copy it to /lib/firmware (I have it in the both folders)) 2. Click on Refresh button THATS ALL, now I am going to put this thread prefix: SOLVED !
(more on Tutorial 4)): Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2230 Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller I am pretty sure all my Drivers are the latest running (Win 7).
It is possible the driver and connection is ok but the wireless device is disabled and can't be used.One of those drivers should not be loaded, and should be blacklisted.To do so, edit Newer laptops come with battery saving features to disable the wireless radio.Lastly, ceck that you have the firmware, modinfo iwlwifi | grep firmware. With the ever changing arena of the wireless driver world and the mac80211 stack, we wanted to dedicate a page that would sort out some tricky wireless driver setups. Just keep reading ---------------------------------------------- Dealing Broadcom ( Credits : stormeye) Now this is 1 card which will give you nightmares with all Linux installations. its been almost a day searching a solution for this card.... already planning to buy alfa card ..mail id of importer from another post on this forum thanks in advance thanks helpful but got question which broadcom card you have? have a fair peek at and and find about supported driver installations and mode of operations. its been almost a day searching a solution for this card.... Before you start your journey into Back Track wireless world, you should first identify your wireless card chipset with 100% certainty.If in doubt, you can always try plugging in the card into a Linux box, and see what dmesg has to say.Prints out the information about one or more module(s).If a fieldname is given, just print out that field (or nothing if not found).
