    Thanks for letting me know.

    But are you 100% sure that these cards work fine in Backtrack 3.
    Because if they work just fine I will think about one right now and I will buy it.

    Why these cards are not listed in the HCL of backtrack 3 wiki page?
    I thing it's better if someone could update so it will be lot more easier.

    Thanks in advanced !

    Both cards have an Atheros based chipset, meaning that you will be using the madwifi driver to run them. As you can see they are both reported to be supported by the driver and therefore will work in BT3:
