If you can purchase a USB wireless adapter you can pass the USB wireless adapter directly through to the Backtrack running in the Virtual Machine, this will then let BackTrack control the wireless USB device. It will then provide you a WLAN interface to work with. Here is one USB Wireless adapter that will work flawlessly with BackTrack http://hakshop.myshopify.com/collect...ifi-awus036nha
nice.. what is the maximum range coverage of that adapter? my netgear usb doesnt reach coverange range that far. I can only detect 2 networks on my neighbors. But with my default the centrino n6150 I can see 20. Does my default network adapter doesnt support packet injection for backtrack? it shows no interface when i type airmon-ng.
I don't know the specs of your built in adapter, so I can't say what capabilities it supports. I can say that I imagine the one I linked is good quality, though I haven't used it myself. I hope you aren't trying to break into other peoples AP's though.
i will need your help i have this //wikidevi.com/wiki/Netgear_WNA1100 wifi usb adapter that use Atheros chipset
Till now i was working with a bootable cd for BT5 r3 and the device was working fine
now i need to use for university reasons the BT from Virtual Box ( i did already the instalation ) but when i use the "airmon-ng " my BT (that runs through VB now) doesnt see any wirelless card
i understand that cannot see the wireless of my laptop but why not the Usb wireless (Netgear)?
i also found the //wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/ath9k_htc
but really i dont understand how ill use it (if is the correct driver)
Could you please help me how ill install the correct driver so i can see the usb adapter or what i should do?
thank you in advance
