    From what I am reading here, the AWUS036NH doesn't support packet injection.

    I never used this adapter on BT4F, but I will download the VM image right now and try it.

    But I can confirm full functionally out of the box on BackTrack 4 R1 boot up (or live CD) and VM image.

    Backtrack 4 R1 has better wireless support, so I recommend that all people use it since it is the latest release.

    wow this thread again?
    1 beware of getting something for pentesting that is for N pretty much any N ap can be attacked with a G wireless adapter
    2 most of the the time having so much extra bandwidth that the N gives you is kind of irrelevant unless you want to transfer large files and such.
    3. Range can be adjusted by altering the tx values or adding an antenna either an omni or directional, i have one that is good for 10 miles
    4. most legit pentesting cases will never need you to have even a 1 mile range
    5. make sure you do your homework before even attempting to buy a dongle, because patching and messing with broadcom drivers is a great big drag

    my 2 cents

    I had similar problems until I read this and bought this Sabrent card Sabrent wireless USB adapter adapter review . I am currently using Backtrack 4 with VMware and it works well. I did have some beginner problems with the drivers and had to use rmod and modeprobe to unload and then reload the drivers to get it to work correctly. If you have a adapter which should be working but doesn’t you may want to try the same thing.
