Now i want to add an pcimcia card i have. It Dlink Airplus XtremeG
model: DWL-G650

I add it and when i type iwconfig it returns me only the onboard one. here are the results :

lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

wmaster0 no wireless extensions.

wlan0 IEEE 802.11abg ESSID:""

Install a real OS!

jk, does the machine see the card itself? Are you sure it is supported under Linux and if so do you have the kernel module built for it?

To see a device in ifconfig in my laptop you have to type first ifconfig device up

and then if you type ifconfig you will see it. But i dont know the name of the device of dlink wireless card..to make it up.

most wireless cards will work under linux with the prism2 driver, do a search for that in your favorite search engine and build the module, that might get it working.

if it doesn't show the card there probably isn't a driver for it, check dmesg when you insert it and see if it is in there.

if the module is installed on the system it should have loaded automagically.

Are you booting Backtrack in a VMware and then trying to see the PCMCIA card? The VMware will not have hardware access to the PCMCIA socket. If you are booting Backtrack directly from a CD or USB you should see it as WLAN0.

It can be a cause of corrupt drivers so update your drivers for better solution.
