Stock Drivers

so after running ifconfig:

lo no wireless extentions

eth0 no wireless extentions

running airmon-ng

returns the headings only, no adapters are show (I am typing this from memory, I am dual booting and I have no internet conenctivity bt5, so I am typing this in Windows)

After Compat Drivers installed

I downloaded version 3.6 of compat drivers, but no luck

Wicd - gives error ("could not connect to d-bus", which seems like it is normal) but it does not show any networks, before and after

root@bt:~# lspci -vnn | grep -i net

02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:0887] (rev c4) 03:00.2 Ethernet controller [0200]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller [10ec:8168] (rev 0a)

by the way, I have Intel Centrino N-2230 wireless adapter

anyone have any suggestions

UPDATE

Are you running this inside a VM? If not, can you post the output of lspci -vnn | grep -i net –  MariusMatutiae Dec 17 '13 at 11:50

your driver is iwlwifi. Fisrt check whether it is loaded, modinfo | grep iwlwifi. If it is loaded, we should see the version: modinfo iwlwifi | grep version. Lastly, ceck that you have the firmware, modinfo iwlwifi | grep firmware. Pls post this output here. –  MariusMatutiae Dec 19 '13 at 5:01
