    @sayman250 well if you set up the IP your giong to get a static ip and that wont get you internet… did you check in prefreances of the wicd manager about your interfaces… BackTrack 5 has less problems then BT4 just saying… just go to this file /etc/network/interface open it with your fav… texte editor and edit as you wish and re-boot would be my best guess… but that would be a static IP and it wont help you get internet.. My suggestion is check ur interface in WICD…

  2. sayman250 says:

    @curemymind in vmware i have no problem cause i am using another xp in vmware.it works nicely with
    bridged connection.why i go with backttrack5.if you know how to setup those ip addres please tell me .tou can mail me.here is my mail address.”[email protected]” or “[email protected]

  3. curemymind says:

    @sayman250 Why don’t you go with BackTrack 5? and it looks like you are haveing problems with vmware. I would suggest to repair though the install of vmware… Just click on the install of vmware and you should have a repair option.. which wont delete anything just repair it…

    Then you are having the radio of ur wifi turned off by the rfkill swtich… If you do a “rfkill list” command without the quotes, and you get either the soft block or hard block.. Then your wifi raido is truned off.. Which i think it’s whats going on… You should upgrade to BT5, which the problem has been fixed… You could try the “rfmod driver_name” where driver is the driver_name ur using. Which i think ur using the rtl8187, then “rfkill unblock all” and then “modprobe driver_name”.

    @curemymind Its a usb, no im running Backtrack Live DVD….Yes, Did start Network n added interface in WICD and show show all available access points..I successfully connected to my home wep encrypted network router but no internet access..Thanks for your help.

  6. curemymind says:

    @mtsacricky09 Is your wifi USB? or mini PCI, or PCI??? Also are you using vmware? if so is that with a usb or a mini Pci or a PCI? Static ip wont help you get interenet unless you are hosting a network :|… Did you start the network? and did you add the wireless interface to the WICD manager? But 1st answer the 1st few questions about if you are vmware and if its usb or any kind of pci… Let me know and i can try to help u from there.

  7. mtsacricky09 says:

  11. Pesi0 says:

    ty for help, this is a very usefull video 🙂 what is the name of the first song? i know the second is the I realize the screaming pain

  12. curemymind says:

    @shadow7guardian7 how are you using backtrack? is it vmware? if that is the case and you are trying to use the intergrated card then no it will not work… vmware does not support nore share your laptops integrated wifi card… i would recomend a usb dongal or as you said a “alfa”… but there is cheaper ones like gsky, but remember cheaper sometimes means cheap product… but sometimes it works grate… but you can use a usb memory stick or a life dvd of backtrack… have you tried that yet?

  13. curemymind says:

    @dannyrug Is the wicd client have the your settings to your interface? When you open up wicd and then click on prefreances is the wireless interface there? If its blank, go to konsole and type in “iwconfig” that should show you if you have a wireless interface. For example mine said wlan0.. I would take wlan0 and type that into the wicd prefreances… Then simply restart wicd with command “/etc/init.d/wicd restart” no quotes… Re-fressh the wicd and see if that works…

  14. curemymind says:

    @Zukatsr125 it wont work if they trying to use the integrated wifi card and use it with vmware… If that’s the case then vmware wont suppor tthat.. Only if ur booting off of the live cd or memory stick, or have a full install on HDD… It will also work with a usb wifi dongle…

  15. dannyrug says:

    when i start wicd and then look for a wireless network it says none available

  16. curemymind says:

    @KiddAce01 Is this a live dvd? or a Memory stick or are you trying to use the integrated wifi card on your computer with vmware then thats a vmware problem… but how are you trying to use backtrack?

  17. Zukatsr125 says:

    @KiddAce01 If you have a wireless card in your laptop, it will work.. you can also try.. wicd-client (in console)

  18. KiddAce01 says:

    One quick question.

    Do you need a wireless adapter connect it to your laptop in order to get wireless internet?

    I did all the steps, but I still cannot see wireless maybe its because I do not have a wireless adapter such as “alfa” etc.

    Thank you.

    @curemymind
    thanks for the info.

    @rosenjake716 Theres a program’s that i like to use that recovers from a format either “file scavenger” or the one i like to use the most is “handy recovery”. But before i would do that i would use a linux live cd with an external hd or mem stick and move the files from the unbootable or damaged windows HDD to the undamaged one. even tho those 2 are really good they do miss some files b/c of the corruption… But most of the time there should be zero problems in recovery.

    @curemymind
    ok i’m going to ask you something off topic ….
    in a windows computer if you delete the hal.dll file and then restart the computer windows won’t load giving you an error and asking you to reinstall the OS all over again.
    So if you were to reinstall the OS again, could you be able to retrieve whatever data you may have on the hard drive ?

  22. curemymind says:

    @rosenjake716 I work at fixing computers.

    @curemymind
    ya i’ve been watching him a bit he looks like a male version of Lady Gaga / P!nk but sings nothing like the crap that gaga sings, more like p!nk
    i’ve been using the integrated wifi and a separate usb wifi device from netgear version WG111v2 (which is suppose to catch packets to crack WEP & WPA)

    N btw wat do u work as ?

  24. curemymind says:

    @rosenjake716 the 1st song name is Girls be ambitious by Miyavi… And what card are you trying to use? for example are u trying to use the integrated card? If u are using vmware then it will not work with integrated cards. Also what kind of card is it? You can go to my website so i can type more then what youtube lets me. just lick on my name and it should be the featured video. Sorry for this late replay i’ve been working night shifts.

  25. rosenjake716 says:

    @curemymind
    i used client interface and i was told that there was “no such device”, does this mean that bt4 r2 doesn’t support my old hardware ?

    and by the way what is the name of the first song and could you also tell me on which anime do they play the first song in ?
