I also purchased a belkin f6d4050 usb wireless adapter. I'm running a BackTrack 4 VirtualBox VM, in a windows 7 host. I was hoping to connect to a wireless network.

I installed the f6d4050v2-setup.exe utillity with wine.
And used ndiswrapper to use the drivers.

But no luck...

Stil no wlan0.

Can anyone help me?

root@bt:~# iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

root@bt:~# ifconfig
