It was very interested to see a Backtrack videos about hacking a wireless LAN. Thats why I would like to try it by myself to hack my friends LAN. He would like to see how will I do it. But I have a problem. Backtrack 3 and 4 don't have a support of my model of a wireless card. It is Atheros AR5B91Wireless Network Adapter. My notebook is Acer 5230. Thats why I can't try to connect ''without cables'' in Linux. It just doesn't recognizes my card. When I put ''iwconfig'' in the Shell I saw only ''lo'' and ''eth0'', both without connection. My friend see ''wlan0'' on his notebook HP.
What should I do: try to look after a driver or what? Thank you.

Try disconnecting any wireless devices in your home (ex. wireless phones, baby monitors) then try again. I had the same problem, but when I disconnected our baby monitor, it worked. The other wireless devices were interfering with the router's signal.
Dell has a known problem with driver conflic the best remedy is to right click on my computer click on property open hardware uninstall the driver there and restart the conputer but first make sure you download the driver from intel and burn them on a cd then when you reinstall you won't have to try to figure out if everything is downloading also in security make sure that you allow this site so that all the drivers download.
but most of the time if these driver are on a card that is micrsoft certified it will be in the driver file and will reload automaticly when you restart the computer after uninstalling and it should elimenate the driver conflic.
First of all does the modem say you Internet check the LED light or directly connect your laptop to it through the Ethernet interface looks like a phone plug but wider if you do have Internet the problem is with the router. it is not syncing with the modem this should be fixed by reseting or unplugging for about ten minutes if thats does not fix the problem you may have a faulty router or a modem doesn't send the right code to your ICP why you can get LAN Internet and not wireless is one of those mysteries.
As per that website, the drivers are now included in the Kernel since 2.6.18. If you're manually compiling your kernel, you can find the module in the menuconfig of the linux kernel source (ie in the `make menuconfig` menu) in:
Device Drives -> Network device Support -> Wireless LAN (non-hamradio) -> Wireless Lan Drivers -> USB ZD1201 based Wireless device support
