Very good friend of the forum
Working Laptops and several wireless cards
HP Pavilion DV9500
Internal Wireless card (Intel Pro/Wireless 4965 AGN) Injection working and good internet connection.
Only thing I found that wasn't working we're the quick buttons above the keyboard. (I'm not concerned about these.)
Everything else was found and installed great.
Compaq Evo N610c
No Internal wifi card. Tested several PCMCIA wireless cards on this though.(see below)
Everything else runs great as far as I saw.
Dell Inspiron 1100
Internal Wireless card (Atheros ar5bmb-43) Internet and injection worked great!
Unfortunately the Video on this only runs in 800x600. Typical for this machine on linux if anyone has ever owned it for a while.
Everything else seemed good.
Dell Inspiron 5100
No Internal wifi card. Tested several PCMCIA wireless cards on this again for verification. (see below)
Much better machine than the 1100. Video working well for the minimal performance this machine has. Everything else seems good.
PCMCIA Wifi Cards:
Proxim 8470-WD - Internet and injection working beautifully, I also tested with 7dbi antenna attached gets a better range!
Linksys wpc54g v3 - Switches to monitor mode but doesn't seem to inject properly. Connects to internet no problems.
Broadcom BCM4318 chipset
Linksys wpc54gs v2 - Connects to internet well. Doesn't switch to monitor mode.
Broadcom BCM4306 chipset
