bt3 probs with wi-fi card

ok so ya I am a noob but here is the prob. VM player in bt3 does not show that I have any wireless adaptor but running frome the live cd bt3 my broadcom card (internal) works fine. but the screen gets fuzzy, I think it is because I don't have enough ram to sustaine the live cd so any help I can get to run bt3 threw the vm player would be a great help. oh, I also tried to install bt3 to a usb drive but cant get the computer to boot to it,and I did change the boot order in bios. thanx to all that are willing to help. --Joel

If you have enough RAM to run a VM, you certainly have enough RAM to run a live CD. More than likely it is an issue with the video hardware.

As for the adapter configuration, it seems like that would be a settings issue in the VM player. Have you setup the interface bridging for the wireless device?
