i've read a lot but still not all from this forum and others. although this site is much better than others.
i started with choosing better wifi adapter. i got linksys wusb54gsc [the one with rangemark and speedmark] and one without speedbuster [v4] but someone broke it.
i don't have any spare hdd/partition to install backtrack3/4 so i tried virtual pc. i don't know how it should work but it looks like it works to slow, i mean while launching cause first i receive black screen for 3mins and than i can seewall paper and stuff. i thought it's my memory, so i managed virtual pc to give backtrack more ram[from 128mbs to 512mbs]. nothing.
so i think i should install it on one of my hdds.
then i run console and typed airmon-ng like in tutorial but there isn't such a command. i've tried different ones but i got no results.
am i missing something/
i tried to connect to internet with my wired eth but to do so i need to put dns servers somewhere but i can't do it in linux os.
i'm mad at myself cause i can surely do what i want or imagine under windows but almost nothing in linux. lol to me
after reading many tutorials and watching utube movies i chose to buy this alfa usb adapter.
it costs 60[/URL] and i found auctions on ebay with 8dbi antenna although have no idea what it does and should i save for the one with more dbi antenna like this one here
and here are my questions;
can i buy any antenna/
what difference does it make/
i don't know if it important but i rent a room in house.
