With airmon? Just supply the interface to the script... THat "bypass" the intel card. On another note, how long does it hang for? Because I have the same card and it works fine when I bother to boot from a cd instead of vmware. On yet another note, there have been users with that alfa card and driver issues. If you have the same issues, then look in the forums because the solution is there. Or just buy a awuso36h card which always works.
