    Question Is this cheap ebay mini PCI express card compatible with BackTrack?

    Since my current wlan card isn't compatible with BackTrack 4, I'm thinking of replacing it with a compatible one. Does anyone know if this card (Wireless MINI Wlan PCI-Express Card Wi-Fi Bluetooth 2.0 - eBay (item 360204405419 end time Feb-01-10 05:24:07 PST)) is compatible with BackTrack? It's cheap and it has bluetooth and my laptop (HP Pavillion DV6-1355dx) has an extra mini PCI-E port. Thanks.

    You could use the "Ask a question" on the item's listing.

    You could check the Wireless HCL thread, and do some price comparison homework.

    You could go here and get something cheaper, that I know for a fact works.

    Besides what was mentioned above, the ebay card doesn't seem to support injection (3dsp chipset, i think). And i wouldn't rely on a multi-function 2 in 1 chinese pci-e card. For the obvious reasons.

    Probably not. Just spend another $10 and get the ALFA AWUS036H off amazon.com
