    May I suggest that you ask this question on a Backtrack forum? Although Backtrack is based upon Ubuntu it is heavily modified to a point where it is not accepted as one of the Ubuntu flavours.

    There may be security settings in Backtrack that are preventing the OS from making these connections. The users of standard Ubuntu that post on this forum would not know about Backtrack.

    Regards.
