    Default Mini Usb Wifi Adapter 100% compatible/Backtrack5 R3

    Hi all.

    My Broadcom doesn't work with back track, the version doesn't work in backtrack so i'm trying to know which mini usb wifi adapter is the best one for backtrack. People told me to buy an Alfa but the problem is that alfa is very very big. I'm actually trying to find an adapter like this one:

    or at least like this one:

    I don't want bigger then the 2º one.

    Thanks for the help.

    The topic of compatible adapters has been covered and there are threads ont he forum that might help you out. Additionally you might look ont he Wiki and see the currently working Wireless cards if they fit your needs.
    Also the aircrack-ng site/forum might help.
    Back|track giving machine guns to monkeys since 2007 !

    Do not read the Wiki, most your questions will not be answered there !
    Do not take a look at the: Forum Rules !

    I already searched but all i find is about Alfa adapter. The others links i have found talked about compatibility but not about backtrack, they talk about Fedora or ubuntu or any other distro. I didn't find anything about backtrack. Just to give you an example, my ethernet card works in Backtrack but it doesn't work in Ubuntu. And in Linux Mint all my hardware works.

    that's why i'm a little lost here and i just needed someone to give me a name that i will buy it. :|










    I've also found this information in the Backtrack website:

    Wireless Cards

    THIS LIST NEEDS TO BE UPDATED FOR BT5.
    Tested and working cards

    We were able to test the following cards. Note that "passed" means "passed an aireplay -9" injection test. We will be expanding on this list as more feedback domes form the community. From our testing we found that most major chipsets were supported, as well as the most common cards.

    AWUS036H (rtl8187, r8187) - both mac80211 and IEEE drivers - passed
    AWUS036NH (Ralink RT2870/3070) - using the mac80211 rt2x00usb drivers - passed
    BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01) - using the mac80211 b43, works well - passed
    Rockland N3 - (Ralink RT2870/3070) - using the mac80211 rt2x00usb drivers -passed
    Edimax EW-7318USG USB - (Ralink RT2501/RT2573) - using the mac80211 rt2500usb/rt73usb drivers -passed
    ASUSTek Computer, Inc. RT2573 - using the mac80211 rt2500usb/rt73usb drivers -passed
    Linksys WUSB54GC ver 3 - using the mac80211 rt2800usb drivers -passed
    Ubiquiti SRC - using the mac80211 ath9k drivers-passed
    Internal Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG - using the mac80211 iwl3945 drivers-passed
    Dlink WNA-2330 PCMCIA - using the mac80211 ath5k drivers-passed
    Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01) - using the mac80211 ath9k drivers-passed
    Netgear wg111v2 - using the mac80211 rtl8187 drivers-passed
    ZyXEL AG-225H v2 - using the mac80211 zd1211 drivers - passed
    Intel 4956/5xxx - using the iwlagn drivers - passed

    The problem is that he said " THIS LIST NEEDS TO BE UPDATED FOR BT5. "

    It's already my 3º netbook that i buy and the wireless card never works with backtrack. I really want to use backtrack but i always get this problem. A hand at this moment would be very appreciated.

    Thanks,
