I failed to install USB adapter to Backtrack, so I need professional help. I have BackTrack 5 R3 with VMware. I somehow installed driver for Atheros AE9271 but still when I type "iwconfig" I see only "eth0" and "lo". I'm using Alfa AWUS036NHA with Realtek AR9271 chipset.
Running fw 2.6.1 using a powered hub with a flashdrive. When booting with my Atheros AR9271 (Alfa AWUS036NHA) inserted all is good, pineapple detects it as wlan1 and internal as wlan0 When booting with my Ralink RT2501/RT2573 inserted, pineapple detects it as wlan0 and internal as wlan1. Why is the Ralink assigned as phy0 instead of the internal wlan Only when booting the pineapple without the Ralink and inserting it after boot it will detect as wlan1. dmesg output with both devices inserted:
