Dell 1390 mini card not found

I have Fedora 9 installed in virtual machine on Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop. Am having problems configuring the Broadcom 1390 mini wireless card. After going through the configuration process (I have tried numerous different approaches) ndiswrapper -l command shows the bcmwl5 driver installed but finds no hardware.
Likewise using the lspci command does not see any wireless card. It only picks up ethernet. My cable internet connection works fine but no wireless.
Might this have anything to do with virtual machine?
