    Default Wireless Cards at Best Buy

    I understand there is a sticky thread on which wireless cards to buy.
    I understand there is a list of "good cards" here http://www.aircrack-ng.org/doku.php?...bility_drivers

    I have a large Best Buy gift card I can use to purchase a new wireless card that works out of the box in backtrack 2 final.

    I am thinking about: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....#productdetail
    But I dont know if it is V1 or V2, apparently V1 is bad and uses PrismGT SoftMAC
    While V2 is good and uses R8187. How can I tell?

    Another one I am looking at is the linksys found here:
    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1142298457206
    or here http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1134701703165
    The site says the Linksys WUSB54G v4 is good, but I don't know what version this is.
    Best Buy is vague, so I don't know what will work.

    My list is here:
    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....%23%230%23%23l
    And because of the gift card, I can buy anything at Best Buy.
    Which wireless adapter would you pick?

    --I know that that a list of good adapters is covered in a sticky thread, but I just cant find out which versions Best Buy has to offer, and if I am going to buy a wifi adapter JUST for backtrack, I would like it to work 100% out of the box.

    Thanks!

    netgear wg511t version 1.

    If best buy does not have it or cant get it I would never shop there again.
