Tplink wn422g v2 not working in backtrack 5 r3


Recommended Posts

I expected from your /var/log/messages output that the wireless driver had loaded, and created a new interface.

However, the output of those commands indicate this has not happened.

You could try :

Download this file to your Desktop: http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kerne...d2acb7;hb=HEAD

Open up a terminal and enter these commands one after the other (you will be asked for your password on the last step)

cd Desktop
sudo mv ar9271.fw /lib/firmware

reboot and see whether it works.

Be sure to unplug your device and plug it in again after rebooting. If it doesn't, follow these steps:

Download this file to your desktop: http://wireless.kernel.org/download/...ss-2.6.tar.bz2

Then open a terminal and enter these commands one after the other (you will be asked for your password on the last step):

cd Desktop
tar xjvf compat-wireless-2.6.tar.bz2
cd compat-wireless-2.6
./scripts/driver-select ath9k_htc
make && sudo make install

after that reboot.

Failing that - I would suggest try updating to Kali, as backtrack isn't really supported!

The thing is that, it will work if i use the same usb device with same backtrack in my desktop computer
