Summary0007251: external usb adapter is getting disconnected again and again,only in wlan0 (bridged connection)
Descriptioni'm noticing this bug from 2-3 days, actually the problem only in bridged connection whenever i connect to by external usb adapter,it always getting disconnected.

i'm using vmware's installer image.

that's not my usb adapter or vmware's fault, as usb adapter is working with host machine and vmware is showing it in removable devices. only wlan0 was getting disconnected in bridged connection.

hope! it'll be solved soon!

[OBTW I forgot to Mention I am a Developer]
Do you have hardware issues at all?
There are many known issues with running in a VM.
The main ones are trying to use a virtual "usb" driver.

1 My suggestion is check your drivers on your system.
2 Run a Dual boot system/Make a bootable usb drive.
3 Use Don't use vmware if it is not working try something else
