I am using VMWare Workstation 9.0.0 build-812388, on a Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1 host.
I am trying to connect my USB Wi-Fi Adapter (Atheros UB91C) and connect it directly to the guest OS (Also Windows 7). When I attempt to do so, VMWare gives me the error:
The connection for the USB device 'Atheros UB91C' was unsuccessful: The device is currently in use.
So far, I have attempted to uninstall the adapter, which led to a driver error. Afterwards, I re-installed the adapter drivers and disabled it. I still get the same message.
My USB controller for the virtual machine is present and set to USB 2.0 compatibility. The Wi-Fi dongle is connected to the USB 3.0 port, but the same problem happens even when I use the USB 2.0 port.
Searching online only gave me links that talked about USB 3.0 incompatibility with workstation 7.1 or below, but I've read that Workstation 9 supports USB 3.0.
Do you know why my VMWare Workstation USB Wifi is still in use?
