    Default What to do next?

    Hai friends,i am running backtrack 5 R1 on VMware.I cant connect backtrack to the wifi network i am having in my college.I have gone through a lot of tuts even from our fourms too.I have installed Brodcom 32 bit linux drivers to my backtrack
    when i tried to install that at the first time i got an error saying too few arguments to call the ieee80211_channel_to_frequency(notif_bss_info->channel (i hope this is the one ,sorry i forgot to copy that)
    then i changed the code from
    freq = ieee80211_channel_to_frequency(notif_bss_info->channel
    #if LINUX_VERSION_CODE > KERNEL_VERSION(2, 6, 39)
    ,(notif_bss_info->channel <= CH_MAX_2G_CHANNEL) ? IEEE80211_BAND_2GHZ : IEEE80211_BAND_5GHZ
    #endif
    );
    To
    freq = ieee80211_channel_to_frequency(notif_bss_info->channel
    #if LINUX_VERSION_CODE > KERNEL_VERSION(2, 6, 39)
    ,(notif_bss_info->channel <= CH_MAX_2G_CHANNEL) ? IEEE80211_BAND_2GHZ : IEEE80211_BAND_5GHZ
    #else
    ,(notif_bss_info->channel <= CH_MAX_2G_CHANNEL) ? IEEE80211_BAND_2GHZ : IEEE80211_BAND_5GHZ
    #endif
    );
    Then
    i got this
    root@bt:/media# make
    KBUILD_NOPEDANTIC=1 make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd`
    make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-source-2.6.39.4'

    Is this a USB or internal wireless card?

    You can't use internal wireless card in a VM. The Guest OS will threat the wireless card as an ethernet adapter.
