    hi there,

    I'm having serious trouble with my wireless detection, when select wifi from menu, message come up "no wifi device found!", same with other apps i.e. feedingbottle inflator etc, I select device >usb device > and choose my wireless clipper, my connection will simply go off (pic 1), I then try to select usb icon from bottom right and choose RTL8187, it come up with error message "adapter is busy (pic 2), how do I fix this?

    my system:

    window 7
    using XiaoPan 0.4.5.1 through virtual box
    wireless work perfect in window 7, however won't detect in XiaoPan

    Your adapter is busy because windows is using it (through a utility or connecting to a network).

    Solution 1: Run it through a Live USB
    Solution 2: Associate your device with VirtualBox before you start it and delete drivers / utility from Windows.
    Solution 3: Get VMware

    FYI: There is no picture that I can see.

    Hope this helps.
