    Default will USB to PCMCIA Adapter work with Netgear WG511t on BT2final on VMWARE

    hi
    i purchased a netgear WG511t PC card.
    but my laptop has expresscard 54 slot

    which is the best way to make the card work ?
    1) should i buy a USB to PCMCIA adapter or
    2) express card 54 to PCMCIA adapter

    and will all the features work on the card or are there any limitations to this ?

    does it support Backtrack V2 final on VMWare ?

    has anyone been using this type of setup ?

    looking forward to reply.

    This isnt really a reply, but just to say that I am in the same boat... but for me the adapter can be 34 or 54... so really if anyone has any genius ideas, please shout them out!
    Money aside, do you think it is best to get rid of the card and get one which fits in the ExpressCard slot, or would an adapter be best? (in other words, are there any incompatibilities in this aspect?)

    Thanks.

    Dell XPS M1710, please check it out and check out my hardware, then tell me if I have a real laptop or not.

    Thanks Richard Naggin, very helpful.

    from my understanding pcmcia nor express cards work in vmware whatsoever. Buy a usb wifi card if you want to run bt in vmware. It's probably cheaper too.
    There's no fate but what we make for ourselves.
