So I'm thinking, maybe it's treating the connection between the distro and the host as a direct ethernet connection?
I tried to connect the wlan device to the vm machine, still nothing, and the internet didn't work period. I think I know the solution though, let's say I was going to put BT5 on a laptop, how do I go about connecting to a network then through BT5?
I am facing the same issue too
I have the snapshots of lsusb & lsmod :

Please Assist. Thanks in advance
BTW I am using Gnome version(64 bit) of backtrack in case that is important and I have ext adapter Atheros AR9271 AWUS036NHA and have the latest version of Virtual box installed with extension pack
@Saumya - youe Backtrack is seeing the USB wireless, so you have to install drivers for it. Atheros is quite popular wireless card, so there should be drivers available for it (I am not BT guru, so cannot tell where to tget them from)
