hello again Rizky,
Since you are a backrack developer you should be aware of the wifi drivers that are compiled in the included kernel and you should know how to find the wifi chipset information.

Can you please tell us what wifi chipset you are using?

Backtrack is just another Ubuntu clone, so, I'd advise using the Ubuntu forum. As far as the broadcom driver, you might have to blacklist bcma. I needed to do that with my Fedora install.

Sine I am not an ubuntu expert and don't use broadcom I may be a little out of date, but isn't the firmware still required to make the wifi card work?
