    Post WLAN USB Stick: Which one?

    Hi all!

    I definitly give it up to get my buildin WLAN card working (AR5007UG - tried ndiswrapper but doens't support monitor mode, tried old vendor driver but didn't work with the tools etc... Mailing list says that there will be support in future - but I guess that can take some time)...

    anyway, I want to buy a new WLAN USB Stick - and I want to have it like: "plugin and it works" ..

    So it should do the following:
    - work 100% with BT (so all that tools with packet injection etc.. work correctly)
    - good range
    - not _that_ expensive


    Are there any suggestions?

    I would suggest to buy a PCMCIA card, or to replace miniPCI card in your laptop,
    as in the comparison USB cards have poorer performance.
    Working with Kismet you see almost no difference, but injection is weak.
    I have D-link DWL-G122 ver C1 , and it works, but performance is not very exciting.
    The problem is loosing some signal because of laptop USB controller and there is no external antenna.
    If USB stick is the only option I'd rather try to find Netgear , but check the version carefully, not all of them are working ( read all the letters twice) .

    Hi!

    So you would suggest DWLG122 with this selfmade antenna?

    I found it on amazon i.E., 23Euros is not that much...

    Do they work in perfect harmony with BT?

    Other suggestions?


    Thanks

    in usb and without antenna(it's just a little trick to enlarge detection of aps) it's i think one of best quality for this price ....

    i never had pb with this one but you need to use patched driver for injection they are made by serialmonkey for the rt73 chipset(c1)
    but if u can buy pcmcia it's better...........

    PCMCIA with an external antenna socket.
    Read the post which card to buy ....
    also compability lists on aircrack and kismet web pages.
    BT has the all drivers included, so all the cards listed there should work.

    Hi once again,

    did not want to change the topic:

    Now I want to buy a PCMCIA. Following cards i am interested in (Quoting from compatibility list):

    - Dlink DWL-650+
    Special Notes: Enable the drivers via KDE menu or cd /usr/src/drivers/acx100/ && insmod ./acx100.ko

    got an error and modified it a bit and it worked. cd /usr/src/drivers/acx100 && insmod ./acx.ko
    - Dlink DWL-G650
    Notice: To set up into Monitor Mode type:
    airmon-ng start wifi0
    ifconfig ath1 up
    iwconfig ath1 mode Monitor
    - Dlink DWL-G650+
    Driver : Ndiswrapper
    The one with Ndiswrapper won't support monitor mode, I guess.
    Did anybody make experiences with the other two cards? DO THEY WORK 100%?

    Thanks
    Santa
