Thread: vmware 6.5 / bt3 / win 7 - freezing

    Default vmware 6.5 / bt3 / win 7 - freezing

    any time the drivers are being accessed for the alfa500mw device - realtek rt18187 drivers it freezes.

    when backtrack is booting up it goes to load those drivers it freezes then i disconnect the usb connection to the alfa500mw and it starts continuing to boot up immediately.

    then if i stop airmon to change mac and start again it freezes. i disconnect/reconnect it continues but, then i have to change mac again since it gets reset but i can only do it with macchanger options device command.

    then i try to run airodump-ng wlan0 and it freezes again.

    why does it keep freezing like this? is this due to win 7?

    I haven't seen anything similar with my setup. Have you tried a different network device?

    i doubt it im on 7, altho bt4, and ive had no probs at all.
    Using backtrack for the first time is like being 10 years old again with the keys to a Ferrari.

    How should win7 affect your hardware? Microsoft is pulling off quite a lot of stuff but modifying hardware is not being heard of yet.
