    Backtrack 5 r3 GNOME Can't connect to the internet with TP-Link TL-WN722N card

    Hi, I am new to this forum and to linux, so if I post with bad etiquette or anything, I apologize.

    Alright, here is my problem. I am running Backtrack 5 r3 fully installed on my hdd, with a TP-link TL-WN722N USB wireless card. I know that Backtrack detects my device because it shows up as 'Atheros AR9271' (I shortened that name a little but I will post the results of lsusb below which has the full name) when I run lsusb. However, when I open wicd, it shows that there are no networks available. Here are some ideas I've had:
    1) I have the AR9271 driver, but I don't know if it's installed or not (it may be installed by default but I am not sure).
    2) It may have something to do with me needing to do a modeswitch. I tried usb_modeswitch -v 0cf3 -p 9271 but didn't seem to have any luck with it (I will post the result of that below).
    3) My wireless interface file seems to be lacking something, but I am not sure what (I will post its contents below), and if it is, I am not sure what to do with it.
    4) The wireless card is a USB 2.0 device (as are my mouse and keyboard), and when I am on Windows the wireless card won't work in a USB 3.0 port. However, when I am on backtrack none of the USB 2.0 ports work; it doesn't recognize my mouse, keyboard, or wireless card unless they are plugged into one of the USB 3.0 ports. So I am thinking this whole thing could have something to do with the level of compatibility my wireless card has with USB 3.0. I know nothing about that, though.

    Here are the results of a few commands:

    lsmod

    and finally the contents of my network interface file

    Code:
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    
    auto eth0
    iface eth0 inet dhcp
    
    auto wlan0
    iface wlan0 inet dhcp

    So that was probably a bit too much information, but I thought I'd err on the side of caution.
    Thanks in advance to anyone who reads this, or to anyone who can help me!

    Re: Backtrack 5 r3 GNOME Can't connect to the internet with TP-Link TL-WN722N card

    I had the same problem. Backtrack recognizes it but it does not have the driver.

    If its on a Live CD then boot up with a physical connection so you can download the drivers automatically or if its installed on the HDD then you want to Google installing (or activating) the specific driver.

    Thanks for the help! I found something that looks promising, but I haven't gotten the chance to try it. I will post back here again when I have tried it and let you know whether it worked or not.

    Re: Backtrack 5 r3 GNOME Can't connect to the internet with TP-Link TL-WN722N card

    Alright, so I got the compat wireless drivers from here: http://drvbp1.linux-foundation.org/~...ompat-drivers/
    and ran

    Code:
    tar -xf /root/compat-drivers-3.9-rc2-2-su.tar.bz2 
    cd compat-drivers-3.9-rc2-2-su 
    make 
    make install 
    make unload 
    reboot
    which ran through all of the install info. Then I ran a modprobe for two of the ath9k drivers

    Code:
    modprobe ath9k_htc
    modprobe ath9k
    but nothing happened. I don't know if this is whats supposed to happen if everything is running smoothly or not.
    Then I rebooted, and ran service networking start, and service wicd start, but when I opened wicd there were no connections available.
    and when I run airmon-ng it still doesn't recognize my device. It just gives the same output I posted above when I ran it before.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Moved to Other OS/Distro Talk

    Although Bactrack is based on Ubuntu, it is a customized distro in its own right.

    I suggest the following as a good resource:

    Thanks for the correction, and for the suggestion. I did try posting there as well before I came here, but only one person replied with a suggestion, which I tried but it didn't work for me.
