did you set up your alfa adapter? as in, did you go to Devices --> Network --> Connect to Network Adapter and then --> USB --> Ralink 802.11n WLAN. ?? This is how i fixed my issue with my Alfa AWUS36NH. i know you have an AWUS36NHA but it should be similar.

When I do that says :" failed to attach the usb device ATHEROS UB91C to the virtual machine "

managed to bring the wlan0 and wlan1 up and running needed compat wireless :)
Now in virtualbox still cant see any wifi networks and cant connect the alfa Atheros to it....
