Some SILICA users have experienced issues with the wireless card no
longer being detected by SILICA after an upgrade of their OSX version to
the latest version.  The virtual USB bridge in VMWare products is rather
fragile to begin with and relies heavily on the current state of the USB
controller of the operating system.

The good news is that the solution is simple: update VMWare Tools inside
SILICA to the latest version.  The modifications made to VMWare Tools
supports the changes made in the latest version of OSX's USB host

After the upgrade of VMWare Tools just reboot SILICA and you're back to
business as usual!
