I tried using both VM player and windows virtual machine. BT5 runs fine on both; however; even though I disconnected from my network and was runing standalone on my connection; directly through the wifi antenna BT5 still says there is no wireless connection; even though that is how it is run through the network. I tried running through WINVM as a NAT and as the default; nothing; i tried running through VMplayer; with dsch (or whatever the acronym was basically giving vm a hole in the network the size of a Boeing 777 to fly threw) and it still doesn't read out correctly. so I surfed for the past 3 days on a how to. and have come up with nothing relevant. I made a post somewhere on the forum here; but it has yet to show up. Prehapps still in moderation?? At any rate it has come to my understanding that all that SHOULD be left to do is plug the device over to BT5's virtual machine. so i plug it over; and not only does it not see the device; the network, the internet or anything in between; but the FEW .tar.bz2 packets i was able to sniff out on the internet to hopefully fix the problem are either incompatible with BT5 or they are corrupted. I have no way to tell; i am very new to linux based systems. I hope that someone here can point me to an install packet; a leech-link or something that i can use to inject some kind of sanity into this. if its something as simple as the wifi antenna (with wifi card integrated into it) isnt compatible then i would appreciate being pointed to one that's under 50usd. I dont need anything fancy; just something to help me run these checks and hopefully get to some kind of understanding with this os. any help is appreciated. i know im new; so please dont troll me. if i missed something blatantly obvious its probably because i was looking at the problem from every which way and it blew right past me.
