Here is seems to be a misunderstanding. Setting the virtual network card to bridged will cause it to act like it would be a real network card in the same net as your physical device. It will not pass through a physical device to the virtual machine.

Just out of curiosity: Backtrack is distro made by network and security experts for network and security experts. Since you seem to not know the basic terms of network terminology (like bridged network cards) are you sure that Backtrack is the right distro for you?

If your wireless device is PCI(e) based then you can't use it in the VM. You either have to do a native install or use it from a live medium.
Keep in mind that there are only a few cases were breaking into a wireless network is not illegal and may get you in serious trouble.

PCI based, so not working with a VM.

The Backtrack ISO is a live medium. If you burn it to a CD or use something like Unetbootin to write to a flash drive then you will run it in live mode.

Native in this context means an installation (or running in live mode) on your physical hardware, not in a VM.

Wouldn't the obvious way be simply to ask her instead of breaking into the system (which still is illegal if you do it without her knowledge/consent)?
