If you want to connect through Wifi you have to use an USB Wifi dongle and pass that through to the backtrack system. How to do that is described in the manual of your virtualization software.

Using an Ethernet cable to connect to a LAN on the host means that it should work automatically on the guest if you have configured the VM to use NAT or Bridged mode for the network.
