Did you add assign interface under wireless tab? since 2.4, you can no longer directly assign interface on Interface tab, you should assign it first on wireless tab then you can assign on on your wifi interface.

You probably have to somehow pass the atheros card through to the VM.

Sorry. No idea. My usually recommendation is to not use a wireless card but an access point.
