Help with Backtrack5r3 Wireless card problem
I installed backtrack5r3 64bit gnome on my macbook (10.9) through VirtualBox, and I ordered a wireless card to get it going. I chose Awus036Nh(RT3070 chipset, I am sure it is compatible with backtrack5r3, and i also checked), and it had a CD with it for the driver setup. I pulled the driver out and use the "make" command to get it installed, and it was successful(at least by its look).
However, the first problem I faced is that the USB does not appear in VirtualBox, even though usually every USB plugged in the laptop should appear in the bottom-right corner, including the mouse, trackpad. If I plug it in before opening virtualbox, it works in mac(the utility window pops up), and if i continue with virtualbox, though it does appear, if I click on it I get an error "someone else is using", because it is configured so if I want to have the USB in virtualbox not in the host, I have to plug it in after it is opened.
I looked for many threads, posts and youtube clips, but I can't find any tutorial for Awus036Nh, but for Awus036H(rtl8787l chipset), the more popular wireless card, and the driver is different, so it was not much help. It works on my host os(mac), and it can be detected by vbox(i've used the usb filter as all tutorials instruct, and also installed the extension pack) if i plugged it in earlier, so I am quite sure that nothing wrong is either on my mac, the card or vbox itself. Maybe I missed some steps during the configuration, can someone help with that? It will be great if someone can show me the clear steps, and probably also a clean copy of the driver.
