Activating the laptop wireless card with Backtrack 5
I am using a bootable USB Backtrack 5.
My problem is that the Linux OS cannot see (therefore isn't connected with) the Adapter. I therefore cannot start Networking.
How do I rectify this so that after I start networking, wireless connections will be clearly visible ?
Any help is greatly appreciated
