In this tutorial, I will teach you how to configure your wireless network connection in a BackTrack 5 virtual machine. To configure the network, I am using the wicd network manager, which comes pre-installed with your BackTrack 5 bundle.

If you want to learn how to configure a wired or bridged internet connection in BackTrack 5, refer to my tutorial:

I've been getting lots of questions about wireless network adapters and virtualization software.

For virtualization software, I recommend:

- VMware Fusion 5 ($50)

- Parallels Workstation ($57)

- VirtualBox (Free)

For an external USB network adapter, I highly recommend:

- Alfa AWUS036NHA

The Alfa network adapter is good for everything... it supports monitor mode, packet injection, fake AP broadcasting, and a lot more. It's good for cracking WEP and WPA encryption, packet sniffing, wardriving, man-in-the-middle attacks, fake AP attacks, and more.
