    Now, when you say it cannot detect do you mean there is no wireless card found or when you run a scan it cannot find any access points (APs)? This must be a very unpopular card, therefore it would not be well supported with Linux drivers which could cause problems. As far as I know there are no standalone drivers that Tiny Core Linux (but might be possible to get it working) has, so you might have to wait until compat-wireless is updated to include your card

    I am under the impression that this is an internal card you are using and not a USB device?
    Can you load your wireless card in virtualbox?
    Does Minidwep and Feedingbottle work?
    What version of Xiaopan OS are you using?
    Have you tried Beini and other versions of Xiaopan OS and have had the same result? did any work?
    Does it pass an injection test? (please run aireplay -9 wlan0 in RootShell)

    Please read this and this. If you continue to have issues then it is not possible. I suggest that you try BackTrack as Linux drivers are more up to date compared to their Tiny Core Linux (TCL) counterparts you get a rtl8187L device if possible. You are more than welcome my Parallels BackTrack VM:

    To convert it into virtualbox is possible. See HERE.

    What I mean is inflator cannot detect my wireless network card. Yes i'm using my laptop internal wireless network card. How to load my wireless card in VirtualBox? When I run minidwep-gtk, it says no wireless card found. When i run FeedingBottle, it also cannot detect my wireless network card.

    I'm using Xiaopan OS 0.4.2.2 (english). I haven't tried Beini or other Xiaopan versions, because i am very new in using Linux, so Xiaopan OS is my 1st Linux-based os. When i run aireplay -9 wlan0 is says not found..

    Here is some pictures that might help:

    Ok, now. You need to stop your host machine from using your wireless card. Otherwise how can Xiaopan use it? Unfortunitly I do not know how to do this with an internal card. With a USB it is easy: Devices -> USB Devices -> Tick. With an internal card I could only guess. You are running Windows! The best way to use this is via USB boot. That way your card will be in use. See Here how to do it. If you still want to use virtualbox try and play around with the following settings.

    So the first thing to do is disable my host machine from using the wireless network card right? I will try and get back to you.

    That is correct. I believe that the best chances you have with Xiaopan picking up your card is if you create a bootable USB.

    Or if if you want to continue with VirtualBox, Google might help you e.g. "mount internal wifi virtualbox"

    Internal cards, particularly laptops are not very powerful or successful. You are better off paying $15.00 - $30.00 AU for an rtl8187L USB device.

    Ok, actually i'm not very familiar with hardware, so i don't even know what rtl8187L USB device means. Perhaps you could attach some picture example on hardware that you used. Thanks.

    Just the same when using VMware, try disconnect your card from host (laptop) and set it to connect either VirtualBox or other virtual machines.

    Is this true? I didn't think VMware could disconnect an internal wifi card.

    As ZorroTheHacker mentioned. Virtualisation solutions (VMware/VirtualBox/Virtual PC/…) only work with USB cards. Card that are:

    PCI
    MiniPCI
    PCMCIA
    CardBus
    Express Card
    PCI Express
    PCI-X
    MiniPCI

    Express won't work at all. If this ever changes or you have figured out how to do this, send me a message.

    Issue Resolved, thread closed. Use a live CD or USB. See here on how to do that with Xiaopan and Beini.

    (Note: Mac users cannot use a live USB through Boot because of there is no BIOS)
