    Angry Wireless connection VMware player

    Hi
    I'm a beginner with BT4 and I have a question before installing it as a second OS. I downloaded BT4 as VM and there is no wifi connection. I've tried to read posts here but after this I have more questions than answers

    First of all I'm using Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter on Win7 32bit. Does BT4 use only external wifi cards? Second whats wrong with VMware? does it need any other driver, special settings to my card? plz help me

    While you won't have access to your wireless card in VM, you will be able to connect to the internet. The VM should set up it's own NAT to provide you with internet. Google if you can't figure it out.
