- Backtrack, Wi-Fi not working 1 answer
i have hp pavilion 15 with RT3290 802.11bgn WIFI-ADAPTER in my laptop there is a shotcut key to turn on(white light)/off(orange light) wifi which works perfectly on windows.
i installed backtrack 5 r3 on usb drive to use it as a live usb, but while booting in bt5 i cannot use my wifi as its not turning on. The indicator is constantly showing orange light(as it is switched off). Due to this airmon-ng shows nothing like wlan0().
please tell me how to switch on my wifi in backtrack as soon as possible.
