    The card is supported out of the box in BT3F and as it is a USB device it should also work in Vmware without problems. Therefore the origin of the problem can most likely be found in the commands you use. Please post the full commands that you use along with other relevant information and I’ll try to help you out.

    By this do you mean that airodump-ng does not pick up any wireless networks? If this is the case it indicates that your card is not properly put into monitor mode. Try the following command instead of airmon-ng start rausb0 and then check if airodump-ng works:
    Code:
    iwconfig rausb0 mode monitor
    Also there is no need to physically disconnect and re-connect the USB device, the following commands will unload and re-load the driver for you, which will achieve the same result.
    Code:
    rmmod rt73
    modprobe rt73
    This is assuming my memory serves me right and your card uses the rt73 driver.

    EDIT:I also located the following thread which I believe might be of help to you as the very same wireless card is discussed:

    Don't forget to:
    Code:
    ifconfig rausb0 down
    before
    Code:
    rmmod rt73
    modprobe rt73
    otherwise, it will likely tell you that the module is in use.
