    Code:
     
    
    # cd /usr/src/linux
    # patch -p0 < /way/of/patch/chan.c 
    # make SUBDIRS=net/wireless modules
    # make SUBDIRS=net/wireless modules_install
    # depmod -qa
    use patch that I posted ( chan.c )

    the problem is: your using BackTrack 4 Beta Release VMWare Image

    Use BackTrack 4 R2 Release VMware Image It should have the driver and firmware (for your adapter) already installed


    **********************
    I just noticed that the BackTrack 4 R2 iso doesn't have the one stage firmware, which is needed for the AVM FRITZ!WLAN USB Stick N and AVM FRITZ!WLAN USB Stick 2.4 and possibly others. So any one still having problems, make sure that you have ar9170.fw in /lib/firmware

    Download ar9170.fw

    @Kostia

    Your NOT USB WIFI, don't work under VMWARE.
    USE a USB card with vmware,
    Please, check cards supported with Back|Track Linux
