    Then why are you running something that is used for net penetration and security testing? It is not a users distro.
    Anyhows.
    Backtrack is no more.
    Move on to Kali Linux with a newer Kernel if poking and hoping wiith a net penetration distro.

    Kali is the revision of Backtrack and it another Pentest distro not for regular users. If you really want to use wireless on either one you need to learn to manually configure and bring up wireless. There are books and articles on Backtrack and Kali and bringing up wireless is usually one of the first lessons. They bring things up manually because as pentester they are doing more with wireless than simply connecting.
