I'm using backtrack on oracle and trying to learn to use aircrack on my wireless and it thinks im connected to a wired network and have no wireless networks available. Is this a problem with oracle?

Okay. In virtual box there is no wireless everything is using a driver installed on your system to emulate a ethernet network connection coming into the virtual machine. Meaning if your PC is using a wireless card virtualbox will still have the driver configure it as ethernet.

{edit} Btw the vernacular term for Virtual Box is just virtualbox not Oracle. There are so many software products from oracle.

While you may not be able to use your PC's internal wireless card you could certainly buy an Alfa (google it) it is capable of Packet injection and everything you want to do. The Backtrack kernel supports it natively, and set up virtualbox to use the alfa as its usb network interface...

so I'm pretty much screwed with this crap? Cause I Really need to learn this stuff to prepare for school and don't want to be using only one os at a time. I can't afford $200 with vmware right now.

Run it from a flash drive or SD card. It is what I do, I penetration test for a living and can tell you running it from a thumb drive or sd card is a much better experience than a virtual machine.

{edit} PM me for any questions I teach "apprentices" this kind of stuff. I may not be able to return your message tonight due to a prior engagement but I will get you up and running.
