    Please can someone help! I trolled through forums and youtube comments but I've failed! I followed the youtube video on how to install backtrack onto Parallels using a mac and I installed Parallels tool and some sort of synopsis stuff! I started to get excited at the point where you are instructed to open a terminal and type airmon-ng. It does not return any information... I can only assume my wifi card is not compatible! But I am a noob so I've got to ask in case there's something I'm missing! My Macbook pro is brand new.. please help! Can I purchase a external usb wifi card to get around this?

    Thank you

    Not in the wrong place but a more descriptive title next time :)

    Remember that internal cards do not work with virtualisation. You need a compatible USB WLAN that supports injection and monitor mode.With PCs and laptops you can run it live using unetbootin. However, with macs your only real option is to get an external USB device.

    Hello again..! Im sorry for being an idiot! Ive bought an Alfa 036H and I have a Mac Version 10.8.2 I thought this would work. Now Im reading in some forums this works on all versions but 10.8.2! Please please help! Would it be easier to borrow a mates PC? I've literally spent days trying to do this and I dont seem to be any closer and £30 lighter!
