VMware ESXi 4.0 and USB Wireless Network Adapter?

ElvisGElvisG Posts: 167Member
So I have Backtrack installed in a VM. I have searched google for the past 3 hours and I give up. I am trying to get my USB Wireless Network Adapter working. The closes information I got was to check Configuration -> Hardware -> Advanced Settings and configure Passthrough. This isn't an option as it says "Host does not support passthrough configuration". The warning sign does say that this is unavailable for use except for a single VM.

So my question is this, if you can use a USB wireless network adapter in a VM. How do you set it so I can use it with only 1 VM?

    Yeah, I read that but the "Configure Passthrough..." is greyed out. The BIOS doesn't have Intel Directed I/O or AMD IOMMU options so I think I'm SOL. I'm almost 100% positive that's what I need to configure to make it work. Thanks anyway.
