SIOCSIFFLAGS: Unknown error 132


Today when open my Backtrack4R2, there's some error "SIOCSIFFLAGS: Unknown error 132" when I'm running ifconfig wlan0 up. I don't know actually what happen with my Backtrack machine, because the day before, everything is running well.

v4L@bt:~# ifconfig wlan0 up
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Unknown error 132

After Googling, finally I found how to resolve the error above.

rmmod ath5k
rfkill block all
rfkill unblock all
modprobe ath5k
rfkill unblock all
ifconfig wlan0 up

Hope this can help you who have the same problem with me…:-)
