    Default Wireless Networking

    I'm now using virtualbox to run Backtrack 4. Unfortunately my laptop has a broadcom wireless network card. Selecting NAT on virtualbox will allow me to get internet on backtrack 4, but none of the other features work. lspci | grep Broadcom doesn't do anything. When I try and bridge my Wirelesss connection and start Backtrack with a bridged network, it gives me an error, probably because of my Broadcom card. I'm thinking the only option is to buy a network card (a USB one). I'm thinking an Aerthos card, they seem well supported for Backtrack. Any suggestions on what type or does anyone know how I can use my Broadcom card with backtrack? Thanks.

    Maybe you should read the faq and pay close attention to the sections on wifi and visualization.
