How to enable Cisco AE6000 (usb wifi adapter) in VirtualBox Ubuntu 12.04

I would like to use Cisco AE6000 (usb wifi adapter) in VirtualBox Ubuntu or Kali.

I have tried the previous guides by googling. Currently, dmesg shows:

fw version:0.1.00 build:7640
RTUSB_VendorRequest failed(-110), TxFlags=0x0, ReqType=OUT, Req=0x6,…

ERROR!!! NICLoadFirmware failed, Status[=0x00000001]

!!! rt28xx init fail !!!

I checked lsusb and iwconfig:
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 13b1:003e Linksys
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 80ee:0021 VirtualBox USB Tablet
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub


ra0 Ralink STA
eth1 no wireless extensions.
lo no wireless extensions.

lshw -C network

-network DISABLED
description: Wireless interface

logical id: ra0
capabilities: ethernet physical wireless
configuration: broadcast=yet driver=RALINK WLAN multicast=yes wireless=Ralink STA

Could any one help me ? is it possible to use Cisco Linksys AE6000 in VirtualBox ?
Thank you so much,
