    Default HP mini 311 question?

    I'm fixing to get a HP Mini 311 and I was wondering if this is any good with back|track 4. I have searched both the forum and google and didn't find what I was looking for. I really would like to get a definitive answer on this. If the default wifi card is not compatible I believe that a Atheros AR928x Half Mini PCI-e Wireless Card 802.11n BG that I found on ebay will work. I just wanted to know if anyone had any experience with this hardware?

    Yes, I bought the win7 hp mini 311 the day it came out a week ago or so. You MUST order the b/g Broadcom wireless [14e4:4315 (Broadcom bcm4312 rev 01) ] and it will essentially work "out of the box" (see EDIT below) with any 2.6.31 kernel like Ubuntu or Xubuntu 9.10 to give full managed and full aircrack-ng command capaibility.

    I don't think BT4 has that high a kernel yet.....so use Ubuntu.

    EDIT: You need to perform only one Xterm command to obtain the full capability: sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-karmic b43-fwcutter

    You do know that installs the ndis drivers and you'll only get normal browsing wifi capabilities.

    Hey, I got full monitoring and injection capability with that simple process and now use the USB to boot into those capabilities quickly. Aircrack-ng and airoscript-ng both installed. iw was also required of course. It was a nice surprise to me but I assumed it was the latest kernel capability from 2.6.31-5 of Ubuntu 9.10. Xubuntu 9.10 also had the same capability. I tested both of those Distributions although I only tested it with the 14e4:4315 (Broadcom bcm4312 rev 01 wireless chip set. That is one reason i posted....so others would also be aware of this.

    Thanks,

    A
