    Red face Possible to search for WIFIs in VMWare???

    Hi all,

    one question only: Is it possible to list all visible WLAN Routers near to my in VMWare??? Yes or no, if no: WHY, if yes: HOW?

    PS: I'm very new to Linux, but a Vista Ultimate Power User:-)

    Best regards from Germany

    Yes.

    You do it the exact same way in VMware that you do it in any other version. That's assuming that you have a wireless adapter installed in your VMware version of BackTrack. One important point here is that only USB wireless adapters work in VMware.

    There are a few different ways that you can achieve this, but I use. (I'm assuming that the reason why you want to do this is for wireless pentesting).(This is also assuming that your particular wireless adapter shows up as wlan0)

    ifconfig wlan0 up
    airmon-ng stop wlan0
    airmon-ng start wlan0
    airodump-ng wlan0
