Backtrack 5R3 Troubles using Virtual Box

Hello everyone,

I tried to find any solutions for my problem in diverse forums but I do not find any help for my problem, so:

I wanted to track the MAC of my Laptop but Fern Wifi Cracker takes YEARS to find anything. Nothing happens and it just says "Tracking.."

I am using Virtual Box on WIN 7 and I get my WLAN via USB as it is suggested in the backtrack FAQ.. :cry:

I hope I really don't waste your time with these simple questions ^^

I haven't used Firn but it looks straight forward enough. First and foremost, you should seriously consider upgrading to Kali Linux. It replaces the backtrack. I'm also going to assume you are new to this considering you didn't already know that. No offense just gives us a place to start in helping you.
A link for you: http://www.kali.org/

Before you do any wifi work on any new setup you need to check to see if the card is first recognized. To do that simply run:
Code: Select all
# airmon-ng


If you have never done any wireless cracking before you should also run an injection test to ensure that your card is capable of packet injections. Put your card into monitor mode and run this, it's a basic test:
Code: Select all
# aireplay-ng -9 <interface>


Get back to us with results.

First of all: Thanks for the help

Well, it says inface , chipset, driver but does not show anything so I guess it is not recognized :-/

The second command showed me this: syntax error near unexpected token 'newline'

What do I have to do to solve these problems? All what I want to do is finding my stolen phone :x and I am a newbie in these things :/

Wait what? Uhm, ok first if airmon-ng isn't showing your wireless card and it's usb then you probably need to enable the port within the VM.
Now, what? Apparently I don't understand what your goal is here. If you have a stolen phone this tool isn't made for that. You are playing with a wireless hacking tool. Not a tracking device.

Well I found this guide here:
http://rumyittips.com/how-to-track-any- ... -location/

And I thought you could track the MAC of a cell phone with the Geolocatory Tracker in the Toolbox and I whonder why it does not work.

Thanks for your patience, again ^^
