Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)

I am running Backtrack 4 (guest x32 as Linux/Ubuntu ) on Vbox 3.1.2.r56127 on Windows 7 x64 (host). I just got Alfa 802.11 n USB network card. When I plugged in to my laptop I started virtual box. Than under Backtrack -> USB I added Ralink 802.11 n (101). When I started Backtrack I try to check the Ralink from the status window and I got this message (attached file). Also here is my output from:

From BackTrack when I run lsusb I get only two options.

This is a problem with USB floppy drive (TEAC fd-05puw) and USB Clear 4G modem. The later always BSOD Win7 when pulling USB out after Virtual Box was started and shutdown. Still exists in 3.2.6 version
