FAQ | BackTrack Linux - Penetration Testing Distribution
- Why cant BackTrack use wireless card “X” inside VMWare or Virtualbox ?
- 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.
Thank you so much for doing a little research before giving up and asking others to do your homework for you... I don't want to insult you by offering solutions to the VLC issue, I'm sure you have found the solution already.
