    Default How to make Airport Extreme appear in BT4 vm image

    I installed the VMware image on my Macbook (with Airport extreme (0x14E4, 0x93) Broadcom) using VMware Fusion. But when do:

    AirPort Extreme (0x14E4, 0x93)
    No interfaces appear. I googled it for something like this but found no exact match, can someone tell me where can I start or what to do (if you're willing to write it ofc =)).

    As the objective I want to be able to inject using my Airport Extreme, because I saw in here:

    HTML Code:
    http://www.aircrack-ng.org/doku.php?id=broadcom
    That this was possible since Kernel 2.6.17.

    Thanks in advance.

    This gets asked so much it's actually in that FAQ thing at the top of the page......

    Q. Why cant BackTrack use wireless card “X” inside VMWare or Virtualbox ?
    A. Any virtualisation software can only use USB wireless network cards as physical devices, all other types of wireless card are seen as virtual ethernet devices and can only be seen as a wireless device by the host and not by the guest operating system. So if you want to run BackTrack in VMWare or Virtualbox and have full wireless capabilities, make sure you are using a USB device.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69
