http://www.backtrack-linux.org – I am familiar with BT, been using it since BT3. The problem I have is with 5r3, when I use wicd to connect to the internet. I have BT installed in dual-boot with Windows 7, not in a virtual machine. My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L875D, and the wireless chipset is the RTL8188CE, which I need to use the 8185 drivers. I have no problem with the wireless card itself; packet injection and everything works properly. The problem is when I try to actually connect to a router. I have tried with an unsecure router, WEP secure, and with an ethernet wired connection. In each case, wicd shows it is conn (HowTos)
