    Default Re:

    Their are drivers out on the web that will make the card work if their are no native drivers in backtrack 3.
    You could also buy an Orinoco Classic Gold, My PERSONAL opinion its the best card, but i'm sure someone will disagree.

    id be careful getting one of those "wardriving kits" from ebay if that is what this is. I tried that once and got a card that had been re-branded and had a crappy chipset out of hongkong.

    That being said a google search for "BackTrack compatable hardware" produced...
    A list of backtrack compatable hardware! AMAZING!

    Well no I am not getting a war driving kit I am just getting the PCI WiFi card. And to the guy who reccomened that one product, I forget the name and am too lazy to scroll down, that is a PCMCIA card and this is for a desktop PC, so I am going PCI slot.

    I am going to be using this in Windows and in various Linux distros including backtrack and doing some light wep cracking (cracking my wep for fun and maybe taking my pc to my friends house and cracking his wep to give him proof that his "encrypted" wifi means jack shit.)

    And as for the card I am talking about which I can't post a link to but I'll try.

    hyper text transfer protocol colon slash slash tinyurl.com/6o2cbm

    So if you guys know of any cheaper cards then I am all for it. I just need it to be PCI, I guess I could go USB but I would rather it be PCI, have a removeable and upgradeable antenna...and be compatible with linux and windows, and have good transmit power? I am a n00b so don't really understand that stuff. But logic tells me if you have the best antenna money can buy it might not do shit if you don't have a good wifi card.

    So thanks for any input.

    I hate to bump threads but I got to know what should I get? I need wifi card that works under linux and can do some light WEP cracking, will be used like 3 times for cracking wep, otherwise just the basics of web browsing.

    Should I get what I posted above or something else? Any input is appreciated.

    The Alfa AWUS036H 500mw (USB) comes recommended in a few posts on the forums. Search and you will find more info on it here. The Orinoco Classic Gold is recommended as well(PCMCIA). I have the Alfa and have to say it works fine for cracking WEP. Its USB so am able to use it directly with the VMWare Backtrack image or on my notebook. Am pretty happy with it. You do have to use Ndiswrapper to connect to WPA though. Look for =Tron='s tut on how to set it up. Made it really easy. If you get it search the forums for ALFA and txpower to up the pwr. I know how fustrating it can be trying to decide on a card, searched around quite a bit before I decided to get the ALFA. Its not cheap though. Some say it has trouble keeping a connection, personally I haven't run into that, but others have. If your starting out VMWare is a nice way to learn.

    Too bad it doesn't work in BT3...
    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
