    I have the same problem, but with TP 723N. If you do solve your problem please post it here

    EDIT: I have since solved my problem, VMWare is a virtualization and hence cannot detect your physical hardware, you need to boot it off a USB, all guides should state that airmon-ng doesnt work in VMWARE

    Umm that's not entirely true - you can use USB adapters with VMWare no problem whatsoever, I'm doing it right now.

    Let me rephrase that for you, VMWare is capable of detecting physical hardware such as removable devices in this case. However not all hardware is supported. The best solution is to dual-boot Backtrack so that you may directly connect your USB adapter and it will show up. Then if it is compatible with aircrack you should be good to go.

    Or you can just boot up BT from a livecd.
