    Are you sure that your broadband card is compatible with backtrack2? Have you researched the compatibility of the card and made sure you loaded it correctly? I would research for you, but I'm at work and research should be the first thing you do.

    I'm not REAL sure how to build a driver because I know next to nothing about programming, but I imagine you download the driver for your broadband card and either use ndiswrapper or compile the driver for it.

    Honestly, though, why would you want to use a cellular broadband card for backtrack 2? What are you trying to accomplish?
