BackTrack 5 b43 driver

I am following the program here »www.backtrack-linux.org/wiki/ind···rack5_r2

and I am getting an error or doing something wrong. Can someone please point out my unseen obvious mistake please?

Why are you so surprised to see sinners in church? Are you shocked to see sick people in a hospital too?

Before `zcat /proc/config.gz > .config` try `cd /usr/src/linux`
From the instructions it looks like he is moving into that directory by the command-prompt, but he doesn't list out actually cd-ing in there.

I got through that! Thanks. Now i did a restart, and wicd network manager can't see any wireless networks. I am using this computer now with ethernet.
Anyone able to suggest what do to next?

Just out of curiousity, did Backtrack come with the requisite firmware?

BT basically comes with nothing (as I think most linux does). If you want it... you need to download it, enable it, activate it, etc...

I needed to rebuild the kernel (what this post was about for the b43 driver) install flash, sound, everything! it's a lot of work... huge learning curve.... but it's A BLAST! very fun stuff. I am actually experimenting with Reaver now at my office.

Reaver implements a brute force attack against Wifi Protected Setup (WPS) registrar PINs in order to recover WPA/WPA2 passphrases, as described in »sviehb.files.wordpress.com/2011/···_wps.pdf.

Reaver has been designed to be a robust and practical attack against WPS, and has been tested against a wide variety of access points and WPS implementations.

On average Reaver will recover the target AP's plain text WPA/WPA2 passphrase in 4-10 hours, depending on the AP. In practice, it will generally take half this time to guess the correct WPS pin and recover the passphrase.

So many things to practice, learn, and experiment.
