    Default RTL8187 + VMWare + Windows Seven + Backtrack 4 beta

    Hello, I am using an Dell X300 with intel pro wireless 2200BG and an external USB RTL8187 device. I'm using VMWare player and a Backtrack 4 beta image. My trobble is to get the RTL8187 to work. When I power up the virtual machine it says that couldn't find driver for a USB device. Obviously the RTL8187. Why is that? I've tried this procedure:

    r8187 [Aircrack-ng]

    ifconfig wlan0 down
    rmmod r8187 rtl8187 2>/dev/null
    wget http://dl.aircrack-ng.org/drivers/rt...ux_26.1010.zip
    unzip rtl8187_linux_26.1010.zip
    cd rtl8187_linux_26.1010.0622.2006/
    wget http://patches.aircrack-ng.org/rtl8187_2.6.27.patch
    wget http://patches.aircrack-ng.org/rtl8187_2.6.32.patch
    tar xzf drv.tar.gz
    tar xzf stack.tar.gz
    patch -Np1 -i rtl8187_2.6.27.patch
    patch -Np1 -i rtl8187_2.6.32.patch
    make
    make install
    -----------------------------------------------------


    and everything worked fine, except that it didn't solve my problem.

    sh wlan0up

    returns: sh: Can't open wlan0up

    lsusb

    returns:
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

    /etc/init.d/networking start

    returns:

    Does that card work under the same Windows you are running VMware on?

    why are you still running beta!!!!
    before you do anything dload the final release its wayyyyyy better
    you have to make sure that that the usb networking device is connected to VMware and not to the host OS, you can easily do that through a drop-down menu on the vmware window that BT4 runs in. Chick on VM on the top of the screen and then select removable devices and find your device under USB, then choose to CONNECT (DISCONNECT FROM HOST)
    once you do rthis the USB will be under direct control of BT4 and you will be able to use it for sniffing/injecting/airbase-ng or whatever
    chipset 8187 is native to BT4 so you shouldn't have to load drivers for it, just turn it on using ifconfig wlan0 up and then type in airmon-ng and it should be in your list.

    i'm trying to use the final version but I don't know why it's working SOOO slow in my system (vmware 6.5 - Dell X300 1152mb ram Centrino 1,4ghz). The strange thing is that the beta works flawlessly, very fast, and the final so slow... I did choose the HOST ONLY option for the network adapter, but it doesn't work, gives that USB error when I start the virtual machine...
