Vm ware and virtual machine is not detecting the external wifi adapter

Could anyone help me solve the conflict between host and guest machines on vmware which cannot let me use my adapter in vmware

I doubt if the virtual machine is able to detect physical NICs, however if its USB did the guest machine detect the USB? Make sure necessary guest additions are available just to be sure.

Otherwise you need to configure the virtual network adapter to bridge to your physical wireless network adapter, then see if you’re able to access the network. All the best!
