    Default BackTrack 5 + VMware, Atheros AR9825

    Hi I've read this thread. I was trying all methods. I've got VMware 7.0 and BackTrack 5. I've got integrated Atheros AR9825. I was also trying these methods in BackTrack3. I even made USB Live with BackTrack 3, didn't help. In BackTrack 5 i got this warning:
    root@bt:~/compat-wireless- make
    ./scripts/ > include/linux/compat_autoconf.h
    make -C /lib/modules/2.6.38/build M=/root/compat-wireless- modules

    The Wiki says it works:
    Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01) - using the mac80211 ath9k drivers-passed
    You don't need to install any drivers, also if you are using it inside a Virtual Machine, it will be shown as a wired interface.
    Back|track giving machine guns to monkeys since 2007 !

    Do not read the Wiki, most your questions will not be answered there !
