I'm running VirtualBox 4.1.2 in Ubuntu 10.04 host with Gentoo Linux as the guest. I've been trying to use a USB WiFi device (Atheros chipset) in the guest OS, but so far no luck yet.
- When I put everything in the guest OS in a real machine (i.e. no VirtualBox guest), the USB WiFi device works OK.
- If the guest OS is Windows XP, I end up with an yellow exclamation in the Device Manager.
- If the guest OS is Linux, I'm getting the following kernel message.

My guess is that the USB WiFi device itself and the setup in the Linux guest might not be an issue, because when I use a real machine, everything works perfectly. sol
