AR9285 (ath9k) good in managed and monitor/injection modes.
AWUS036H (r8187 and rtl8187) both good in managed and monitor/injection modes. Tx iwpriv power setting under r8187 works well.
WUSB54G V4 (Ralink 2570) good in managed and monitor/injection modes
AWLL3026 (zd1211rw) good in managed and monitor/injection modes
Intel 4965 (iwlagn) managed mode only (as expected). Must still use the famous wpa supplicant approach for full aircrack-ng capability.

It takes days to get my reply post thru the system so let me answer by editing my initial post.....and hope you see it. Yes, it was an AR9285 that I had tested. I retested with the full wepcrack process and it works fine for me. In your case, though, you may be looking for more complete or subtle data?
Let me know if I can do a test for you to see if I get the same problem you do....
