Can't solve that problem since long days.

Sometimes, with much luck and after long waiting it pass and set the cardin monitor mode like it should. But mostly not.
+ VMWare workstation v6.5.1
+ fresh downloaded BT3F VMWare
+ alfa RTL8187 wifi usb card
try iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor
iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor
airmon-ng start wlan0
any other suggestions people?
When you say it freezes, does the whole OS freeze, or just the terminal? Are you accessing the VM through the console or SSH?
I am going to assume that you are running windows as your host OS and you are using the console, if you use Putty, can you SSH into the image while it is "frozen"?
here is a screen shoot
um so whats the problem if iwconfig wlan0 mode monitor works?
