This may help you out as the wireless connection is only thru host so you won't be able to scan thru it although there are a few options.

I'm not the expert with this (VM) but I'm thinking that it may be that the only way to achieve a working internet connection is to literally install the operating system to the hard drive.

From what I have been taught here; Linux works well with a 64bit system architecture.

Would installing the "firmware" and "wireless-tools" (if he hasn't already) help?

@Ztcoracat
The OP has an internet connection thru the host whether it be wireless or not it will show up as wired connection in VM.
@AminhoVic
Is dmesg recognizing?
Did you install usb-utils?
Have you read the documentation on VMware as to getting usb wireless working?
Have you enabled usb in the Vmware settings menu for the backtrack installation?

Yes it's possible for you to get BackTrack to recognize the wireless card installed in the pc through VMware Workstation using "NAT" setting in the network adapter in the Vmware machine setting.
I have never used virtualization but I am taking the time to learn about it.
