    Default Linksys WRT300N, suitable for Bactrack2? good idea?


    Hello!

    here my question: someone at work is selling the WRT300N fromn Linksys at 45pounds (about 70-75 euros).
    Is that suitable to use as a wireless device to inject and everything?
    Is that better than the devices recommanded here (for example I saw a device quotted here by someone, USB device, on an ebay german, for about 70 euros)...

    Is that a better to invest in that than in the other device?
    Thanks!

    Ps: I was told by a friend that he could plug is routeur netgear as a "injecting device"!

    Look on the wiki for tested cards and comments. If the card is not on the wiki and your feeling "open sourcey" then buy it ,try it and add it to the list whether it works or not. That will help others in the future.

    found this with one simple search

    what your missing is the most crucial part of info, the chipset

    Thanks!

    I know.. I can not find that info, im trying to look at the detailled specs, without success!!

    I read the wiki, thats where I found put theses reocmmanded devices: the "ethermax" usb key for about 16pounds, and that "xforgot the name" wifi device for about 70 euros, apparently good! (someone posted a link that sent to Ebay german)


    edit: I mean by the look of it and its antenna it looks powerfull:

    The same applies to the V1 of the WRT300N, as its Broadcom based,

    You didn't try very hard. In fact you must not have even read the link purehate provided.

    Plus, he's about to spend money on a Draft-N unit, the spec hasn't even been completed yet.

    I have some surplus flobee's for sale, I wonder if he'd be interested.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    haa thanks!!
    no, I didnt had time to read his article provided I was at work!
    I just see the link now, its either an atheros or a broadcom chipset, as depending the version!

    yes haha its "pre draft", I know but I have the "4965agn" which is alkso predraft!! (I believe its pre draft1.0 eventhough I read somewhere that its supposed to be pre drafted 2.0)
    its just I had it in march and the 2.0 was official around march..does not match!

    it does not really matters the "N" here, I mean even for a "b or G" it looks powerfull! aha yes Its based on the design, I admit

    But then it says like "18db" and a home made cantenna should provide between 10 and 20 db, depending how good you make it!
    Mine is about -50 db, haha!!

    Just prior to get out of work I had time to email the seller to ask which version is it, with the quick glance from the link offered by your help!
    I'll see later on

    thanks again!

    I still want to know how the hell you use an access point for backtrack?
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Wow, when you said 70 pounds, I thought gaddamn thats heavy! Is that commercial grade?

    If you google: wrt300n + chipset, fourth link down for air-stream.org.au (if your google is the same, .de is different I know for sure) they give you the versions and chipsets.

    You can try asking Brainslayer some shit or just download packages from openwrt repository once you've finished the open||ddwrt flash for your model/version.

    Also you may check out fairuzawrt...been awhile since i've been to the site though.

    Basicly you need to get a stripped linux for your cpu (arm or mips) and download packages for your cpu and modules ,if possible, for your wireless chipset. As you know vs. 2.0 uses Atheros chipset but madwifi support may be non-existant.

    As far as usb dohickies...there are more than meets the eyes.
