Hi, i noticed this bug running my bt3 beta version from usb stick on 3 different computers.
When i run it on a toshiba satellite a100 it works like a charm, and i can manage to do all kind of security testing.
But when i run it on a desktop computer backtrack3 is not detecting my usb wifi stick (Linksys WUSB54GC rt73 chipset).
I have tried it on 2 desktop computer but it only seems to work with my toshiba, the command lsusb and dmesg does not recognise any usb plugged except for the pendrive where backtrack is.The common thing between this 2 desktop computer is that they have an asus motherboard on them.
When backtrack loads, obviously, the only interface i can see is eth0

If someone could help i'd be grateful.Thanks wink
