    Default USB Wireless Adapter under Virtual Box

    Hi to all,

    I am running Windows XP SP3 on my laptop as a host pc and as guest I have installed Backtrack 3 Final under Virtual Box.

    I've tried everything possible to have my Alfa 500mW AWUS036H USB wireless card to work under Virtual Box.

    Do I actually need to disable the card from the host and then try to enable it under Backtrack 3 in virtual environment?

    Please can someone kindly tell me what I have best to do in order to get it up and running.

    Thanks in advance!

    No, I just posted that once.

    Please can someone tell me how I can have full control of my USB wireless card under Virtual Box? Which parameters do I have to change in Virtual Box settings in order to get full control of the device?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm not sure you can, actually. Virtualbox will find your wireless card and the virtual machine will then see it as an ethernet connection. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Virtual Box has a setting for taking over ethernet and wireless ports
    Sometimes I try to fit a 16-character string into an 8–byte space, on purpose.

    I think you are wrong my friend.

    You still can use any of the usb wireless cards in backtrack 3 under virtual environment and I am 100% sure. This was the reason why I bought a usb card.

    What I need now is to have some instructions of how to get it to work..

    Thanks anyway!
