While running Backtrack 5 on VMware Fusion I was not able to successfully use the my NetGear N600 Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter to make use of some commands like airmon-ng. It seems that the Adapter is not being recognized by Backtrack even if VMware has specifically designated it to it. I know not all wireless adapters will work with Backtrack, but I was wondering if there were any drivers for this adapter or any workarounds.

Hardware:
MacBook Pro (2011) running VMware Fusion
NetGear N600 Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter

I apologize if there is a thread that explains this problem already, but I am a newbie to Backtrack and this forum.
