    Default Network Card Seen As eth0, not wifi0 or wlan0

    So I have been reading all over the place about getting Intel Pro 3945ABG working on back track but I dont think thats my issue because I have network activity.... I did a quick dnsmap of google and was able to connect. Furthermore ifconfig shows I am getting ip information from eth0.

    Now, I am running the Beta 3 through MS Virtual PC 2007 with my network card selected as the network device. Other variable I am wondering about: does it matter if my wireless switch on the front of my notebook is on or off? and, does it matter if I have an active network connection in windows while im running BT3.

    If i can get BT3 to recognize my card as wireless I would have no problems cracking I think.

    Thanks!

    ps - I know there is a BT3 support section but I have to wait three days before I can post there. I was up incredibly late last night trying to get this working and was reading every single post with info on 3945 drivers to no avail because of my particular issue

    I was going to say the same thing, because I know VMware doesn't support anything but USB, but honestly I didn't know about Virtual PC. But here is the official answer:

    SYMPTOMS
    You cannot directly access your PC Card device in a virtual machine.

    CAUSE
    This issue occurs because Virtual PC does not support direct access of PC Card devices in a virtual machine.
    Note however that there is a workaround.

    Seems like there is no way around it.... guess ill burn a cd image and try it that way. Most likely if I can still get an internet connection on VPC then it should recognize my notebook's wireless...

    Ill report back
