dual mode? i.e managed and monitor?
As the title suggests, i remember that some network cards allow to run in 2 modes simultaneously, in that you can surf the internet, and also capture packets. If you can, is it onlu specific chipsets and cards that allow it?
Would my atheros ar5007eg allow this, if possible?
atheros is great chipset,
your chipset probably work (wifi0, ath0)
you can make a bridge, play with airbase-ng, play with airsnarf...
[en gros oui, ton chipset est le meilleur en terme de compatibilté, donc normallement pas de probmèmes particulier]
