    Odd. The network card compatibility list for BT3 shows your card to work 100% out of the box. I'm not sure on installing the updated drivers, but you might want to try a Live DVD instead of the CD version. The Live CD is a stripped down version of the USB/Live DVD. The Live DVD might have the drivers already included you're looking for.

    Both the CD and the DVD versions should have all the needed drivers installed. I believe that the only way the two versions differ in is that the CD version is missing the kernel headers and Compiz Fusion.

    When you say you are not able to do "a good injection" what exactly do you mean? In case you are able to do any injection at all successfully you already use the appropriate drivers, the rest mainly comes down to the strength of your card and other outside factors as distance and what kind of obstacles there are between you and the AP.
