    No. In fact, I think most don't. Check for the chipset used. For ,example, the zd1211 usb will monitor so it will do a passive crack but not an injection or active crack.

    Use the forum for the chipset list that will work.

    If you have a specific USB maybe post it if you can't find it posted. Do a goggle though and try to find the chipset.

    I think you are in luck. It looks like it has the Atheros chip set. Read the forums and tutorials on Atheros and madwifi-ng commands that run the ath0.

    But, if I remember, in your Linux terminal type:

    airmon-ng stop ath0
    airmon-ng start wifi0 ath0
    ifconfig ath0

    then type

    iwconfig


    you should see the usb in monitor mode ... then you know you have a good usb for cracking
