Hi all,
i'm new to BackBox, so i try to install a VM on VirtualBox.
All Right, only one thing, wireless doesen't be recognized as wireless, but as ethernet (eth0), so i can't use aircrack pack in monitor mode.
I download as new the driver from intel website.
Still not working, :(

Have u got some ideas?

Thank you very much.

I guess you never used VM before. And that is problem, if you did you should know that you can set vm network settings. But that is not problem here, you need externel (usb) adapter to ne connected to your pc, than use VB option "connect usb device" to connect you wifi adapter, like that when you type in terminal iwconfig (or ifconifg) you can see that your wireless is working.

In this stade, you can't have "wifi" enabled in your virtual machine ...but!

Question you are going to ask is "How i can use my integrated wifi card". For that, pls check:


Don't ask, read : http://wiki.backbox.org
or just run sudo rm -rf /*
