Hello members
I've just installed backtrack5 R3 on HP Pavilion p6 Series which it originally came with Windows 8 start 64BIT, I no longer have the windows 8
The problem that i'm atually facing is i cannot connect to the internet using wireless
I have done some research but with no luck then i decided to come to here
When i try to connect to the internet by going to Applications>>Internet>>Wicd Network Manager, All i get is "No wireless netwoks found.
I opened up command-line and typed "Ifconfig" or "ifconfig -a"I only get eth0 and lo
I tried to do "Ifconfig wlan up" I get this error >>wlan0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
I already have got linux 5 R3 running on my Acer 32BIT Laptop and it's working perfect
Since i installed Linux on it "wlan0" was already there i manager to connect to the internet and download the wireless manager including all the UPDATES
Any idea guys why i'm not able to connect to the internet?? please help
and thanks in advance :)

I think this lspci entry:
03:00.0 Network controller: Ralink corp. Device 539b
is the one related to the WiFi. Here is the linuxwireless.com page on this device. Depending upon the actual chip, it may not be supported as yet by Linux: http://www.linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/rt2800pci

If you post the output for this device from "lspci -v" or "lspci -vv", it will help identify the actual chip set. The first is verbose output. The second is REALLY verbose output. 3 v's and you get rediculously verbose output! :-)

Hello rubberman, Thanks for your responds
Here is the lspci output as you may already know, It's a huge list :D
I really need help, Because i removed the Windows 8 because i thought it will work straight away as the one i put on my laptop
