backtrack 5 won't recognize my WG111v2


Hi

I'm runninig Backtrak5r3 from VMware,
I bought Netgear WG111v2 wireless usb,
Installed the driver (ver 4.0) on my win7 samsung laptop,
When I write: airmon-ng, I get:
Interface chipest driver
I continued and wrote :
airmon-ng start wlan0
and all i got is:
found 1 processes that could cause trouble if airdump-ng, airplay-ng or airturn-ng stops working after a short period of time, you may want to kill (some of) them!
pid name
1658 dhclinet3


What do I need to do to start work it on?
I'm very new as you can see and this is my first time of using linux, I bought the netgear card because I saw the list of a working cards with backtrack5 and it was on the list.

Many thanks to all the helpers.
B

You might want to do a bit of research on Virtual machines and wireless dongles
as in how a VM sees wireless

Can I do it on VMware machine at all (after reserching)??
or do I have to fully install BT5?
Can you give me some useable links for reserching?
Or can you just tell me how it works?

When I run iwconfig
I get: no wireless extension (I choose in VMware>virtual network editor>bridged and I tried all the possibilities I have like automatic, netgear, intel, etc..)
