When using backtrack in a guest Vm you cannot access the physical wifi as a wifi connection, it will be passed to the client OS as an ethernet connection which will halt wifi scanning and monitoring capabilities.

If you want to run backtrack with real wifi capabilities, then you should run a physical installation from a CD, USB drive or hard drive installation.
