Just installed backtrack 4 final in a dual boot system with Windows 7 on my laptop. It an intel 1000 series wireless card. When I do ifconfig, it is not in the list, however when I do ifconfig -a, it shows up under wlan0 and the TXpower is 0, which means its not working I believe. When I try to start it this happens root@bt:~# ifconfig wlan0 up SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory I have googled and I think its a firmware issue? So I found the firmware for it, iwlwifi-1000-3.ucode, and placed it in /lib/firmware, however I am a noob and I dont know how to install this firmware, or even if I am on the right path. Just trying to get wireless to work on backtrack 4. Any help is appreciated.
