I'm in the process of trying to prove a colleague that WEP is about the worst business risk in history, but I ran into a problem trying to crack a WEP key using a BackTrack VM.
Is it possible to access the wlan device from within the VM? From what I can tell, the VM tools act kind of like an adapter and only contain an interface to a physical ethernet device. Mapping the wireless device to a VM adapter shows up only as standard ethernet (ie. no monitor mode...).
I've tried this on VirtualPC, VMware and VirtualBox.
