http://www.kali.org backtrack is no longer supported by offensive security.

Yes to kali, but not sure where you got the notion backtrack is no longer supported by Offsec. They own it, the name, and the logo. Just no longer making new backtrack distros, and moved everything into Kali and is the future of where BT leaves off. http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=143 will still be around for a long while to come.

As for ops question, is it built in wireless, or USB wireless card? All virtual machines, require USB Wifi cards. They can only use built in wired eth0 nics. For wifi, they need USB wifi cards in virtual machines for both VMware and VBox or Virtual Box. Otherwise, you need to live boot, or native install, to use built in wifi cards.

Check here for card compatibility: http://www.backtrack-linux.org/wiki/index.php/Wireless_Drivers#Wireless_Cards

No guarantee your card will work, but if it is a USB card, open a console, run dmesg before plugging it in, then plug it in, and run dmesg again. It should shed some light, on what the OS sees being plugged in, and any info it knows about it that might be compatible or share same chipset to other cards known to work with BT5.
