I may have answered my own question, since I think I've tried everything and can't get my wireless usb adapter to even come up in my BT5.
I have a MacBook Pro OSX using VirtualBox with BT5.
I've tried installing drivers as others have with BT4 with the DWA-131 and I can not get this dang thing to pop up. (http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...ad.php?t=34438).
The reason I'm even trying to get this to work is just so I can refresh myself, I just graduated from JCAC recently and figured I'd try and keep myself refreshed on this...
So am I right to assume that the DWA-131 Dlink Wireless adapter won't work with BT5?
