    Trouble installing Linksys WUSB600N v2 in backtrack 4 final under VM Workstation 6.5

    I am having latest release of the backtrack 4 that is installed under VM workstation 6.5.3, now the thing I need to know is how to installs the drivers for Linksys WUSB600N v2 so that backtrack 4 can recognize it.
    I have also checked the card compatible with the aircrack suite.

    Does anyone know if Linksys WUSB54GC works out of the box or what I have to do to make it work?

    Here are the steps through which you can get the WUSB600N v2 to work.

    First get the RT3572USB driver from Ralink
    After that unpack and stuff, cd into directory
    Follow the steps that are mentioned in the README, such as enabling wpa_supplicant and networkmanager support
    After that search in the file common/rtusb_dev_id.c for similar to this

    Code:
    {USB_DEVICE(0x1690,0x0744)}, /* 3572 */
    {USB_DEVICE(0x5A57,0x0284)}, /* Zinwell 3572 */
    {USB_DEVICE(0x167B,0x4001)}, /* 3572 */
    After that add this line below it, so that the driver can recognize your WUSB600N as a device that it must support. You can find the actual device id through lsusb, hence it can be applied to any device.


    Code:
    {USB_DEVICE(0x1737,0x0079)}, /* WUSB600N v2 */
    Then make or make install
    After that do the distribution-specific stuff for enabling interfaces etc.
    My stick is now working without any problem at throughputs of about 7MB/s; I recommend buying it if you need such an adapter.

    2. DLINK DWL-AG132 (802.11a/b/g compliant)

    Can be used on any Linux platforms such as; Redhat Enterprise Linux V5, Fedora 8/9, Ubuntu, SUSE, etc. If yes then are the drivers for these devices are available or not.

    All work with some help, but it is a chip on the card is not a company to sell them. But I am not sure what all the chips CIP I now work with ndiswrapper then program and then use Windows drivers. I have mine set up both ways. I am a hard ware geek, but you can search Google for more information and the driver you need.

    The only option for these devices is to use ndiswrapper
    But I want to know what will be the performance price one has to pay for this. I mean is the driver for these devices are provided by the product vendor or it is distributed by the chip vendor?
    One more thing, will it be available to me? Or I have to buy RED HAT ENT Edition 5 along with the support or maintenance?

    Re: Trouble installing Linksys WUSB600N v2 in backtrack 4 final under VM Workstation 6.5

    I am facing problem with the installation of the wusb600n driver, I have downloaded it from the Linksys website. The which I am using are the one are used for XP:
    Driver.2K* rt2870.cat* rt2870.inf* rt2870.sys*
    Currently I am using ndiswrapper for loading the rt2870.inf and it is displaying the message that ndiswrapper is not having an interface. My operating system is linux on KDE, Kernel version is 2.6.18.8.

    Any help will do, thank you

    I have had success with the WUSB600N driver comes with XP on disk and ndiswrapper but it is unstable when in WPK1 encryption mode and stops receiving after a short time of any slightly aggressive load.

    I would like to stress that I tried Ralink usb2870 ndiswrapped driver and it crashed when I tried to install it? Any suggestions anyone
