    Hey I think you should get a new keyboard at first, your questionmark key seems to be broken.

    Also doing a little research on the forum would have given you the answer why it is not working.

    And if you are new to the stuff, why do you want to use BT?

    PCI devices DO NOT connect directly with Virtual Machines. Search before posting.

    Snayler however the point is to utilize PCI NIC in vmware but the statement Vmware does not work with pci devices is wrong.Vmware works with PCI wireless Devices but treat them as wired medium.if host is having PCI wireless device,which is connected to internet or some other network,through wireless.the VM's can access internet/network too using bridging mode,mapped to physical PCI wireless NIC's.however if someone wants to access wireless NIC in VM's than one have to get USB Dongle for that.

    Edited... I was trying to counter-argument with you, but I prefer editing my post to a clearer message instead of creating a discussion between us. Anyway, thanks for the notification
