    Question Best USB Wifi card !!!

    Hi there to you all

    So I'm using backtrack on VM and i need a good USB Wifi card to work with.
    And I'm asking for your help to chose one.

    Witch card is the best (working aout of the box) in your opinion with backtrack4 ?

    Thanks a lot for your help

    There's no best overall wifi device. Every chipset is good and bad in their own ways. Also you need to be more specific. You can't just say I want a computer so give me the best one.

    For wireless, do you want 802.11N capability? do you want MIMO capability? do you want high power? are you on a budget? do you want ones that can work with other OS/platforms such as *BSD, windows, etc?

    I was looking on the site of backtrack the compatibility, with backtrack and aircrack-ng.
    Money is not the poblem. As I sad some keys are not able to inject packages etc... that's why i was asking so may be some one can tel me if he's using a good key witch works on backtrack "OUT OF THE BOX" so i can use it with aircrack-ng and to hav all the options that the program offers. So i chowse this one :

    TP-Link TL-WN321G

    * Driver : rt73
    * Chipset : Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2501USB Wireless Adapter
    * Notice : At first I plugged this in to my computer,and it didn't work. airodump-ng rausb0 showed no APs detected. Updating to the latest driver made this work. Once I got this card working, it detected more AP's than my WMP54G and my Netgear WG111v2, injected as well as either, but did not report Power properly.

    If you're looking for a better alternative than TP-Link I suggest what scottsee said (Alfa AWUS036H) or I'd get Alfa AWUS036S (also known as Hawking HWUG1, Edimax EW-7318USg and other alias). These dongles would have a minimum capability of being able to attach various antennas which is very handy for various things unlike the TP-Link and the aformentioned manufacturers seems to be more reliable with their model number, model version naming than TP-Link.
