    Hey guys. I know this question has been asked 1000 times. But no matter how many posts I read, or how much research I do, I cannot seem to fix this problem.

    My Problem
    Any time I try to any of Xiaopan's features, for instance minidwep-gtk, I am told NO wireless card found!

    Additional Info
    I am using a TP-Link TL-WN722N Wireless USB dongle.
    I am running Xiaopan 0.4.7.2 on a Virtual Machine with Virtual Box
    My host is a Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit desktop PC
    I have installed the VirtualBox 4.3.10 Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack to enable USB 2.0 support in Virtual Box
    Below is a screenshot of how the OS is configured in Virtual Box

    Below is a screenshot of my Network settings in Virtual Box

    Below is a screenshot of my USB settings in Virtual Box

    When I type lsusb in the Xiaopan terminal, I get the following output. Obviously the USB device is being detected

    Things I Have Tried

    Booting into Xiaopan with the above settings with the USB dongle connected. I am told No Wireless Card Found!

    Unchecking the Enable Network Adapter box in Virtual Box and booting Xiaopan with my dongle unplugged. Then when Xiaopan has finished completely booting, I plug in my dongle. Same result

    Unchecking the Enable Network Adapter box and removing my USB filter in Virtual Box. Then booting into Xiaopan with my dongle disconnected. Then when Xiaopan has finished completely booting, I plug in my dongle. Same result

    I don't know what else to do, and feel like I am no longer making progress on my own. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Have a look at dmesg in xiaopan , also what does iwconfig give you in xiaopan?

    Below is a screenshot of iwconfig

    I would love to show you dmesg. The only problem is, the output is too huge to screenshot. I sent the output to a file so I can transfer it to my host PC and paste the contents here, but file transferring doesn't work. When I try to mount guest additions, I get the following message

    Yes can't write to iso output would have to be hard drive or usb stick.
    Try
    Code:
    Select All
    dmesg | grep Atheros
    see if the firmware is being loaded
    Also try lsmod see if the driver is being loaded

    Have a look at ifconfig you might have to bring your adapter up ie ifconfig wlan0 up

    Doesn't look like I have a device called wlan0. This is strange.

    Yes is strange the only thing I can think of is its still being used by windows ?? Have you ejected the device ?? The USB icon in the taskbar bottom right in windows I think other than that look for any message about firmware in dmesg | grep firmware also remove the device from your bridged device list

    Thanks for the suggestions. Will try.
    What should my Network settings in Virtual Box look like if I am removing my USB dongle from bridged devices?

    Just use anything other than your usb adapter bridged adapter is just using your windows internet, you cant use your adapter in xiaopan if it's in use by windows.
