    Default Network Problems in VirtualBox

    I recently purchased a Alfa AWUS036H, and I have yet to get it to work.
    I've tried installing both the 100mw and 1w drivers on Windows 7 with nothing. I have tried installing them on Backtrack 4 R1 by running the CD in Wine and installing "Windows Drivers".

    On top of that, I can't get Backtrack in VirtualBox to find any wireless connections. I find them fine outside of it in Windows 7. I've went to Network options and picked nearly every combo I could with no luck.
    If anyone could help, I would appreciate it. I've searched, and I almost feel I have a faulty Alfa. But if so, I still need to know how to get WiFi in VirtualBox without the adapter.

    Virtual machine devices and wi-fi do not mix. You can configure the virtual machine as NAT. When you are attached to the computer via its real wi-fi, the virtual machine emulates a real connection to the device. Do not expect to see a wlan0 interface in the VM, but rather an interface eth0.

    See also.

    wlan0 and eth0 can be used interchangeably while (as an example) cracking WiFi, correct?

    Already skimmed that.. Maybe I will do a full read.

    Brilliant idea. See also the rules while you are at it.
