    Post Wireless issues with realtek rtl8191se driver on Backtrack 4 r2 on VMware 7.0.1

    Hello Backtrack Community
    Good Job you guys are doing, i've been reading the forums consistent for 4 days now and cant find my answers so i decide to post up.

    I am using the Toshiba Satellite L505 With the Windows 7 OS installed. I installed VMware workstation to run backtrack 4 r2 with a bridge connection, however i'm unable to bring up wlan0 whenever i run the command
    /etc/init.d/networking start
    , it seems to me that
    lspci
    wont even see my network controller. I will quote all the information i can about what i did to troubleshoot this without luck. I installed the latest linux driver from realtek official website. unpack the gz make and make install then reboot and still no luck.

    code: /etc/init.d/networking start

    Is it a PCI-E device and will that even work with VMWare?

    Unless your using a USB card you can not access wifi, your actual hardware be it wifi or not is converted to a ethernet link when connected unless its usb wifi card take a look at a alfa there relatively inexpensive

    Besides the adapter may not work im also going to ask if you selected in vmware to connect it to the virtual machine to the usb adapter

    Its a Belkin connect N150.

    Yes it is connected in vmware. However the pre configuration in vmware is set to bridged. If i boot up backtrack i can see where the usb wireless is connected, if i disconnect the bridge, i loose all internet connection even though it says usb is connected

    So what is it that you're actually trying to do, you've got the internet working with your wireless adapter but when you change the network settings you lose the connection?
