    I don't use VirtualBox but reading from this;

    http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch06.html#id403166

    Maybe try setting the network to NAT?

    you can setup two adapters for the machine. One for NAT, one for Bridged, and turn on the one you need at a time. I'm not sure I feel ambitious enough to attempt asking any further troubleshooting questions for now... got work to get done

    After you bridge the network card, use

    Code:
    ifup eth0
    Do this even if the bridged device happens to be a wireless card because Virtual Box will present the bridged card as an ethernet device regardless. Virtual Box bridging presents a virtual device to the guest O/S.

    If you want to use an actual wireless card in your Virtual Box hosted Backtrack, use a USB card. Virtual Box passes USB through as a raw device rather than virtualizing it.

    Apologies if this topic has been explained elsewhere in another thread. I just finished installing BT4r2 as a Dual Boot to my Windows 7 primary partition and for the life of me I cannot figure out where I am to look to connect to the access point(s) and subsequent internet. I opened a Konsole and did the command /etc/init.d/networking start which ran for a good minute, but then it did recognize my Intel 4965 AGN. Is there a procedure that can be easily explained to a windows user? I'd like to spend as much time as I can stand to do so on the other partition to get myself used to using Backtrack so when BT5 releases, I won't be as wet behind the ears.

    Any assistance or suggestions are most appreciated, peace.

    A solution which worked for me....


    1.) start virtual network manager
    2.) switch off automatic device switching
    3) take your options manually -> and choose your network card for vmnet0.
    => should connect after restart.
