    This question gets posted at least once a week so the search function is the correct way to go. The wireless USB cards that will work running BT3 natively will also work under a virtual environment.

    ok..i got two device still undecide which one to pick.. still not sure which one better proformance AWUS036E for around 23$ and AWUS036S for around 30$ thing is i found this on the forum I'll just copy and pasted ...
    ALFA Networks AWUS036E

    * Driver : rtl8187 (mac80211, kernel >=2.6.24)/r8187 (ieee80211, kernel <=2.6.24)
    * Chipset : Realtek 8187L
    * For Kismet, edit your Kismet.conf to "source=rt8180,wlan0,ALFA"

    "* Notes : You can turn this device to go ~300mW but do be warned that this may damage your device. Also WPA under this mode is not supported." <<what does this means?

    ALFA Networks AWUS036S

    * Driver : rt73
    * Chipset : Ralink RT73

    This card works out of the box including injection with BackTrack3. You will need to ifconfig device up before you can set monitor mode, etc.


    I'm sorry my english is not very well to understand two of this device so i couldnt choice or understand which one is better on proformance on range and compatiable for WEP / WPA or WPA2 which my router can set. That's working on vmware backtrack on window xp so.. which should i go for? i had airlink101 it's a not very good device.. low range . slow download data which my rounter r next room .. and i have another device which netgear usb wg111Tv2 i couldnt get it work ..so.. i was thinking go for the AWUS036S and the money is a object well if you have anyother advice or different divice for usb with antenna like this please dont be shy to say .. i do understand we have alot of these kind post and topic but i been searcing over atleast a month couldnt find which more clear for me.. so that's why i decide to make a nick and a topic thanks for help all have a good sunday.
