How to run DD-WRT x86/x64 VM (Virtual Machine) in VirtualBox
Skip step 1 if you already have a DD-WRT virtual disk dd-wrt_public_vga.vdi created.
1. Start VirtualBox. Modify settings of an existing VM Client:
Storage -> Controller: IDE -> Add new 1GB virtual disk dd-wrt_public_vga.vdi
Network -> Adapter 1 -> Attached to: NAT (= VirtualBox host-to-guest NAT/DHCP router), Type: Intel PRO/1000
Start the VM Client. Write dd-wrt_public_vga.image to 1GB disk:
- if OS is Windows use software PhysDiskWrite
- if OS is Linux use the terminal command: dd if=dd-wrt_public_vga.image of=/dev/sda
Stop the VM Client. Modify its settings:
Storage -> Controller: IDE -> Remove dd-wrt_public_vga.vdi
Network -> Adapter 1 -> Attached to: Internal Network (= switch connecting VM Client to VM DD-WRT), Type: Intel PRO/1000
2. Create a VM DD-WRT with settings:
Linux / Other Linux / Use existing virtual disk dd-wrt_public_vga.vdi
Network -> Adapter 1 -> Attached to: NAT, Type: Intel PRO/1000, Cable Connected: Uncheck
Network -> Adapter 2 -> Attached to: Internal Network, Type: Intel PRO/1000, Promiscuous Mode: Allow All
3. Start the VM DD-WRT and the VM Client.
Access VM DD-WRT WebGUI at 192.168.1.1 and enable WAN -> Automatic Configuration (DHCP)
VM DD-WRT -> Network -> Adapter 1 -> Cable Connected: Check
VM DD-WRT should get WAN IP 10.0.2.15 from the VirtualBox NAT/DHCP _________________ THERE ARE NO STRANGERS HERE; ONLY FRIENDS YOU HAVEN'T YET MET.

I have faced a situation about operation of wireless in virtualbox with dd-wrt(full version) installed on x86-64 platiform and i set wifi card passing through guest dd-wrt.
now i has successfully running dd-wrt inside virtualbox but wireless functionality cannot be used(not display wireless tab).It is being known to be trial version. I am not ensured that if i activate dd-wrt with key, the wifi functionality would be provided.
do you know what should i do to use wifi in this situation?
I would apprentice if get any help from you.
