    Default Wireless Adapter not showing up in BackTrack 4 (Final)

    I have been getting problems that BackTrack doesn't want to show my wireless adapter, When I do airmon-ng and iwconfig it doesn't show in fact, when I go to the network manager it only see's it as eth0 and I am only connected to the net wirelessly.

    I am operating on an ASUS 3000abg with an Atheros 5001X+ wireless card and hosting Windows 7 with BackTrack 4 (Final) as guest in Oracle VirtualBox.

    I really want to start experimenting with this OS but I've tried following through with forums and google but no luck, I am hoping that anyone out there could help me with this thorn in my side.

    If you want to start experimenting then why are you asking questions?
    I mean it would make more sense to start searching google aircrack-ng ubuntu and the forums here, as well as documentation for the tools you are trying to use.
    This topic is covered ad nauseum
