    Default Virtual Box and host-wireless (Extension errors in BT5r3)

    Hi all,

    I am only using my wireless adapter during this test. I downloaded the VM of BT and booted up with VirtualBox, and when I attempt to find the wireless device via iwconfig, I get nothing. I also tried iwlist wlan0 scan and I get "wlan0 Interface doesn't support scanning." I can get to the Internet, and running ifconfig I can see my IP.

    I have tried all of the network adapter settings in Virtual Box, looked through their forums, to no avail. I was hoping someone out there might have had the same issue as me. I am using Windows 7 Professions 64-bit, and running the latest Virtual Box to load up BT5r3. I was hoping to do some packet-sniffing but aircrack can't do anything without the wireless adapter.

    I am bridging the network connection to the following settings (see attachment).

    Any and all help is appreciated.
