Any virtualisation software can only use USB wireless network cards as physical devices, all other types of wireless card are seen as virtual ethernet devices and can only be seen as a wireless device by the host and not by the guest operating system. So if you want to run BackTrack in VMWare or Virtualbox and have full wireless capabilities, make sure you are using a USB device.

I can't see you wireless card listed as tested and from what I've read you probably can't use it (I see a lot of others asking the same question as you).

You can pick up a cheap Alfa AWUS036H (or NH) which has been tested and works well and is USB connected.
