    Question BackTrack 5 R3 no seeing interface


    I have BackTrack 5 R3 installed as a dual-boot OS, with Windows 7 Ultimate as the main OS. I have a wired connection for this computer, meaning both windows and BackTrack use it, I can connect to the internet from this wired connection. However, I can not see any networks around me, and for example, airmon-ng, gives the output



    Code:
    root@bt:~# airmon-ng
    
    
    Interface	Chipset		Driver
    
    
    root@bt:~#
    ifconfig gives the output

    Code:
    root@bt:~# ifconfig

              inet addr:192.168.1.4  Bcast:192.168.1.255  Mask:255.255.255.0

    and iwconfig gives the output
    Code:
    root@bt:~# iwconfig
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    eth0      no wireless extensions.
    
    root@bt:~#
    So, I want to see my interface, and potentially connect to my home network that my laptops use. I would like some assistance on this, I have scourged the internet, and have found similar issues, but not this specific one. I'm going crazy from this all day.

    Haha, I fixed the [code ] problem, now to wait for replies.....
