I have been having problems with the Backtrack VMWare Image are far as having a stable Internet connection. I am currently trying to complete the Pentesting with Backtrack course but lately it's been becoming quite difficult to do anything within the labs because of this.

Pages have difficultly loading, openvpn keeps disconnecting (once about every 2 minutes), ping shows packet loss, etc.

I tried using different versions of VMWare but that does not affect the problem at all. I've reinstalled Backtrack a few times but the problem comes back.

I have no issues at all with my Internet connection outside of VMware. Even Kali works with no issues. It's only within my Backtrack Virtual Machine.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
