    Your drivers from the windows host machine are never passed to VMware machines. Take a look at the VMware documentation you may find a workaround.

    Bonne chance.

    sorry to hear about you being French and all... :-)

    Have you ever tried to plug in your alfa usb stick , when bt2 on VMware is running?
    This is , what works best for me.

    After you pluged it in, open a shell window an start your alfa stick in monitor mode. This is what you have to do.

    I would change may mac first so type the following commands:
    bt~# airmon-ng stop wlan0
    bt~# ifconfig wlan0 down
    bt~# macchanger –mac 00:11:22:33:44:55 wlan0
    bt~#airmon-ng start wlan0 ---> This puts your card back in monitor mode for sniffing traffic.

    and now open airodump for sniffing traffic:

    bt~# airodump-ng wlan0

    Have you checked "Realtek USB device" in the "VM/Removable devices/USB devices" menu ?
