I think I'll buy another pcmcia wireless card with external antenna too...
Can you advise one in particular compatible with linux and aircrack that you know works fine? (on ebay)
I found this: http ://cgi.ebay.de/Orinoco-Gold-PCMCIA-Wardriving-WLAN-Karte-2-4GHz-11Mb-s_W0QQitemZ230205643980QQihZ013QQcategoryZ32900QQs sPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
tnx a lot!
Looks identical to my Orinoco Classic Gold, tried everything known to google to set the card to monitor mode on BT2. dmesg displayed ‘Monitor mode support is buggy in this firmware, not enabling’. From what I read it required a firmware downgrade from 8.72 to 6.16, again no luck. Monitor Mode did work with Knoppix-STD however, from memory the card didn’t support injection (Hermes1 Chip). So I simply gave up. Err… I should try it on BT3, I’ll give it shot over the weekend.

Looks like its in your part of world. You will need to do the external antenna mod on this one. Let me know if you go for it, I’ll post a jpg of mine with the mod.
A word of warning, Netgear has bad bad habit of changing chips mid production on their models without any visible changes. Best check with the seller.
Back of mine reads…
NETGEAR RangeMax Wireless PC Card WPN511
FCC ID: PY3WG511TV1H3
CANADA ID: 4054A-WG511V13
Made in China 272-10221-01
Hope this helps.
ciopper, updated the jpg to reflect the changes.
I'll stop using mine as a paper weight...nice find, thx.
