    configuring wireless USB Belkin adapter for Backtrack


    Ok so I am trying to run BT3 from a live USB, it boots up fine and i can run the startx window interface and everything.

    I cannot get it to recognise my wireless usb adapter. When I boot up Ubuntu this is detected fine and i get the following information

    Ubuntu

    Bus 001 Device 009: ID 050d:815f Belkin Components F5D8053 N Wireless USB Adapter v6000 [Realtek RTL8192SU]

    T: Bus=01 Lev=02 Prnt=03 Port=00 Cnt=01 Dev#= 9 Spd=480 MxCh= 0
    D: Ver= 2.00 Cls=00(>ifc ) Sub=00 Prot=00 MxPS=64 #Cfgs= 1
    P: Vendor=050d ProdID=815f Rev=02.00
    S: Manufacturer=Manufacturer Realtek
    S: Product=RTL8191S WLAN Adapter
    S: SerialNumber=00e04c000001
    C: #Ifs= 1 Cfg#= 1 Atr=80 MxPwr=500mA
    I: If#= 0 Alt= 0 #EPs= 4 Cls=ff(vend.) Sub=ff Prot=ff Driver=rtl819xU

    on backtrack though when I run the command lsusb this is all i get.

    Bus 1 Device 7: ID 050d:815f Belkin Components

    I guess there must be a way to configure the device to work with back track I just want to know how. Any ideas? I can supply more info on request

    On Ubuntu post output of -

    dmesg | grep --ignore-case --regexp=firmware --regexp=code

    After the device plugged in.

    Is there a reason that you're using BT3? BT4 is based on Ubuntu, it ought to work with your hardware and can be updated.
