    Is this the classic trying to use on-board wireless module inside a VM?

    Just to make it clear, are you using BT in Virtual Machine with a USB wifi adapter of some sort?

    He (jimmy87) is trying to tell you that VM cannot use Internal or on-board pci, pci-e, mini pci-e or any internal wifi card.

    Sorry, you need a USB device, "finale", period, punto, etc..Do not waste your time my friend.

    One piece of advice: Before buying a USB wifi device, please, check which ones are 100% operational in BT5 (Some devices running under VM have issues, but in DVD live or HDD installations run perfectly).

    Refer to the forums or ask about them...

    Luck.
