    Default Cant connect Alfa AWUS036H to VM VIRTUAL BOX- How to make WIFI get recognized ?

    Vm VIRTUAL BOX cant connect to my Alfa AWUS036H 1000mW 30dBm Chipset : Realtek 8187L

    My main os is windows 7

    The following error appears after clicking on the wifi device on the usb symbol on the bottom right corner

    in Virtual Box Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-4.2.2-81494


    Errorcode:
    E_INVALIDARG (0x80070057)
    Component:
    HostUSBDevice
    Interface:
    IHostUSBDevice {173b4b44-d268-4334-a00d-b6521c9a740a}
    Callee:
    IConsole {db7ab4ca-2a3f-4183-9243-c1208da92392}


    Is it because my laptop only has usb 3.0 slots ?
    The Alfa Wifi has a usb 2.0 connection... ----------------->https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=52170



    How can I fix that ?

    Use unetbootin copy it onto a usb stick and boot backtrack BT5R3-KDE-64 from usb stick ?



    Would buying a 2.0 Usb Hub Device solve the problem ?

    Example : Connect the usb 2.0 hub device to my notebook usb 3.0 slot.

    Connect the wifi adapter to the usb 2.0 hub ?

    I know that VMware doesn't support USB 3.0, so I just use a USB 2.0 port (My laptop has both). Don't know if a USB hub would solve the issue here. You could try and report back to us.

    Just installed the full version of VM Ware Workstation 9


    installed backtrack and still cant detect it....

    "Driver Error"

    Seems to be only working with linux usb 3.0 support


    Would a usb 2.0 Hub work ?

    My os is windows 7 ultimate....still doesnt work


    IS THERE any virtual machine software which supports usb 3.0 ?
    (and where you dont have to be a rocket scientist to control it)
