Hi,

Don't know about your first issue, but vmware DOESN'T pass through
the WIFI adapter, so BT4 will NEVER run airmon. Use the search on
LQ to find more details ... this topic has been discussed a few times,
and quite recently.


Cheers,
Tink

It's not the card - it's vmware (vbox, qemu, ...).

No matter WHAT HARDWARE you choose, unless you run backtrack
natively wifi won't work.
