In response to your question, there is an option in Vmware, that you can select to disconnect an USB device from the host and have it connected to the virtual machine isntead!

usb_xhci.present = "TRUE" is what it should be in order for 3.0 support to work with a linux guest...
what confuses me is that wmware "sees" the Alfa as a usb device in the dropdown menu, but when i choose to connect to it and disconnect from the host, i keep getting the error that "it is currently in use". I have disabled all network connections one by one, no change. there does not seem to be any processess running on the host machine that would be holding on to the Alfa.
If anyone has something else to possibly try, please chime in.

I originally believed it to be a driver issue, so I wiped my laptop and installed a clean copy of 7. Same issue. Tried it with both the VMWare image and LIve CD.
There's an issue with this particular set-up and the laptop which I cannot figure out. Everytime you try to connect to the VM and disconnect from host you get an error that the Realtek is in use.
Wish I knew how to fix this... It's the Alfa awu036h.

I performed a clean install of Windows 7 and installed all updates via Windows Update. Then, I installed all drivers from the Asus Rog website EXCEPT the USB driver. Upon rebooting, Windows had installed their own drivers (perhaps one which came in tone of the Windows Update package).
I'm getting USB 2 speeds but inside VMWare I can now successfully connect my Alfa device and other USB devices.
Hope this helps.
