    I cant get Backtrack 5 to recognise my wifi card


    Hi guys,

    I try to run BT5 on a vietual mashine on my Laptop.

    There's a build in Wifi card and a USB Wifi Card.

    airmon-ng does show none though.

    Would be great, if anyone could help.

    The diagnostics show the following:

    Well, lspci doesn't recognize the built-in card, but it does see a usb one. It is a ralink RT73 type. Go to www.linuxwireless.org for help. Here is a link to the RT73 page there - it looks like you need firmware for this device. rt73usb - Linux Wireless
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
