    Lupin I am only quoting your post for simplicity, but one should also remember that if "we" recommend something and especially from somewhere then it could tie the Dev team/Off-Sec crew it with a specific brand name or company, which may not be their wish.

    I will probably go with a newer model of ALFA networks. One that supports
    802.11n.

    Yes, you are right.

    Reworded:

    The standard recommendation that many people on this forum make as to what card to get has already been mentioned by Gitsnik above. Be aware that this card is not officially endorsed by the BackTrack development team or any member of this forum.

    And also be aware that I dont own any stock in Alfa corporation, but I plan to buy some before suggesting to a few more people that they buy Alfa cards.

    (That last part was a joke, the rest was serious.)
    Capitalisation is important. It's the difference between "Helping your brother Jack off a horse" and "Helping your brother jack off a horse".

    The Forum Rules, Forum FAQ and the BackTrack Wiki... learn them, love them, live them.

    I found two vendors for the ALFA AWUS050NH at $49.99 and $42.20...

    Are these decent prices?

    Default Compability and ease of use for infrastructure security checking

    I have been reading on length about:
    AWUS036H or AWUS050NH
    (BT4 ofc)

    I want a card that is as easy to use as possible - mainly using WEP encryption testing of keys.
    That suggested the more stable (as I assume) AWUS036H.

    However, most companies in Sweden use 802.11N - and regarding the driver problems on the AWUS050NH - I am now stuck in my research.

    Is it better to get two cards - one for each area ie:
    1. WEP 802.11B/G
    2. WEP 802.11N

    I am yet to find a stable card for WPA1/2 802.11N - As I havent found any reviews that actually point at a stable solution?

    Would be most greatful for any links or advice - I rather just buy more cards+laptops than run separate scripts after each other when I go through infrastructure security.

    Many thanks for a good forum!
