    Default The Alfa usb compact wifi dongle

    i have searched the forum and could only find info on the only alfa card people are talking about, i want to know about this alfa card, it is the compact usb dongle, it has a realtek chipset like the larger alfa, not sure if the same or not, doesnt say...here is the link
    www data-alliance net/servlet/the-75/alfa-AWUS036E-RealTek-Turbo/Detail

    can anyone verify that backtrack supports this card? i am just wanting to know because it is about $30 cheaper...

    thanks...

    don't keep it attached to your head with ductape...

    Otherwise, it's ... hmm.. well, not safe as in 247 operation next to you, but for a regular pentests - it's pretty safe. Just keep it a bit away from your male organs and brain

    It is possibly supported by backtrack because of the same chipset but the performance is nowhere near it.
