Does anyone know what Wireless cards work with Backtrack 2? Or does anyone know if Linksys wireless cards have any Linux drivers?
Better yet does anyone know where to get the commands for the various programs that are available in Backtrack 2? :thumbsup:

On backtracks/Remote-Exploit's official website and forum, they have discussed this question in great detail. Link: http://forums.remote-exploit.org/showthrea...t=wireless+card

And if that doesn't answer your question, just browse their forum. Lots of people ask this.


To get the commands of the program, just type in the name of the program in the command line thing and it should give you a list of syntax's. Or google the program.

Cant you just use the ndiswrapper. Thats how I got my broadcom internal wireless card to work.

Yes, you can use ndiswrapper and it works quite nicely for general internet use. But because It's using the windows drivers, it can't go into 'monitor mode' which can collect packets and stuff to use with all their hacking and security tools. So its better to find native linux drivers.
