If you are running a virtual machine, the guest OS is not going to be able to see your internal wireless card. The only way to use a wireless card within a virtual machine is to use an external USB card and have virtualization software that allows USB pass through.

Alternatively, you could just try running Backtrack from a LiveCD or LiveUSB and skip the virtual machine.
