Dunno what to think here. Backtrack is a distro made for the most advanced users for legitimate tasks. What happens is every kid with a cd burner thinks they can hack into the world bank.

You need a more user friendly way to try linux. This is not a backtrack issue. It is an issue with how a VM works.

this is NOT an issue with BT5
VMware will not see wireless
that is a known fact
it "sees" only wired

please READ the vmware documentation

Nonsense. VMware, as much as Virtualbox, is able to pass through USB devices to a VM. This is a known fact, please read the documentation.

@sagy: Are you sure that your wireless device is recognized? Please post the output of
Code:
lsusb
iwconfig
ifconfig
when the device is plugged in and you have a working connection to your wireless router.

Two things I can see on your screen shots: You are using the "Other Linux 2.6.x" settings, since Backtrack is based on Ubuntu it would be better to use the Ubuntu settings. Also, what I get from the USB II of your wireless device it uses the Realtek RTL8188CUS chipset. This device currently has no driver in the standard kernel, so you have to download a driver from Realtek and install it.

well if you insist on using a OS designed for EXPERTS by EXPERTS for experts to use to crack a network that they have been hired BY THE SITE owners
to LEGALLY crack that network .

then you might want to go through the Backtrack tutorials
http://www.backtrack-linux.org/tutorials/
and pay for the training
http://www.backtrack-linux.org/infor...sive-security/
http://www.offensive-security.com/in...eless-attacks/

but remember is is a OS meant for security EXPERTS

it is not for the NEW USER

If you are a beginner than Backtrack might be not the right choice for you, as John VV already pointed out.
Anyways, to install the driver they have to be compiled. In the package you downloaded should be a description how to install the drivers.

humm final question

i downloaded the drivers from the host and they made a script to install the driver

can you tell me how to run this script .. how can i direct the terminal to the location of install.sh

i copied the whole folder (RTL8188C_8192C_8192D_USB_linux_v3.3.2_3192.20120103 wich contain 6 folders.2 files and install.sh ) to a usb flash drive and also copied to the bt5 desktop (using vm workstation )

if you have this on bt5 you could try (in a terminal) to cd into the folder where you have the drivers and the install.sh

then, as root, make the install.sh shell script runnable by:
Code:
chmod +x install.sh
and run the script by:
Code:
./install.sh
From there on you're on your own and probably fucked if you're having problems with this.

Maybe try to download ubuntu and install the apps you need for your.... pentesting/educational purposes. It's much easier to use and to solve a problem at the time with, you just don't have everything in one vm preinstalled.

good luck!

If you don't know how to handle the terminal properly I doubt that you will be able to handle the tools on Backtrack properly, since most (all?) of them are command-line tools. I would recommend to start here to learn your basics: http://linuxcommand.org/index.php
