    [SOLVED] [HELP] BackTrack 5 R3 Cannot connect to the internet + PICTURES

    For over 3 days now I am trying and trying to get this wireless working! I've tried almost every tutorial over the YouTube, Backtrack-linux forums, aircrack-ng forums and others.
    The only one thing I haven't tried is to update the firmware for my Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2230 from here --> http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/...lwifi#Download , just because I really don't know how to do it.
    PS: In 2 or 3 tuts I saw they launch the network simply by going to Service --> Start Network and then they're doing the terminal job. I dont have that option...


    What I am talking about?
    Imma be honest with You guys... I've started with the tought that I want to have a dual boot laptop (Win7 + BackTrack 5 R3) , and hack WiFi passwords (that noob in me... )
    I have to say I have experience with computers at all, WebDesign and Developing.
    What I've got?
    Dell Inspiron 17R 5721
    With 1TB, 8GB RAM, Intel Dual Core i7-3517U,
    Internet cards (I really dont know do I have 2 of them or what?! (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).

    What have I done?
    I've installed BackTrack 5 R3 via USB (with unetbootin). I've tried to open google.com but luck wasn't on my side.
    I've been searching over the internet for like 3 days now and I can say I've tried 2 or 3 things, but I am sure there is something very SIMPLE that I am missing, this is why I am here. To search for help.

    And here the adventure begins...
    What I have tried so far?

    I want to mention that the error when launching WCID was simply fixed it by:
    1.Restart BackTrack 5 R3 and BEFORE launching WCID open Terminal and type:
    Code:
    1.dpkg-reconfigure wicd
    2.update-rc.d wicd defaults
    2. Then I've rebooted BackTrack again and the error was fixed.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    After trying all those Tutorials, NONE of them actually helped me to find Wireless Networks.

    So now the question is... How to get that WiFi working?
    I will be really happy, if someone tell me how to update the firmware drivers (I think this is why it's not working)

    Re: [BIG HELP] BackTrack 5 R3 Cannot connect to the internet + PICTURES

    Nice Picture, QIII !
    SOLVED, this is the new statement of my problem, and I am really glad to tell it

    What I've done?
    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...

    1. Copied the file "iwlwifi-2030-6.ucode" to File System --> /lib/firmware (You can get this file from http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/...lwifi#Download)
    - 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 http://packages.debian.org/sid/all/f...lwifi/download) (Keep in mind you have to copy it to /lib/firmware (I have it in the both folders))
    2. Open terminal and type "modprode -r iwlagn" then "modprobe iwlagn" (without quotes)
    3. Restart BackTrack 5 R3
    4. Open terminal and type /etc/init.d/wicd start
    5. Open Wicd and go to Properties. On the "Wireless Interface" i typed "wlan0" (without quotes) (I have "wlan0" typed too in "Wired Interface")
    6. Click on Refresh button

    THATS ALL, now I am going to put this thread prefix: SOLVED !
