Once again, (you should have easily come up with this with using the forum search): VMware, as the name states, is software that gives you virtual machines with virtual hardware, not the physical hardware in your PC. Your wireless won't work in VMware, unless it is attached to your USB and you have configured your VM to pass it through to your guest OS.

Or in short: Use Backtrack on your real hardware, not in a VM.

Reading the manual? You will see it in your USB options of the VM, but since you are paying for that product, just call the support for help when you don't find it.

This post doesn't contain any of these, it is a technical question about wireless in conjunction with Backtrack in a VM.
