    Cool New Wi-Fi adapter, but which one <-----??

    Hello to everyone..
    First i would like to thank the mod's for building a great forum! And everyone who contributes with superb threads/tutorials...

    I have an Amilo Xi1526:
    Chipset: Intel 945PM+ICH7-M
    CPU: Intel® Core™ Duo processor
    T2300E (1.66GHz, 667 MHz, 2MB L2 cache)
    1GB DDR2 533MHz
    SATA HDD (5400rpm) with 8MB Cache: 120Gb
    nVidia® GeForce® 7600 Go
    with 256MB DDR2
    I/O Interfaces
    1x IEEE1394, 4x USB 2.0 ports, 1x S-Video out
    1x DVI-I, 1x Modem, 1x LAN, 1x WLAN, 1x BT
    1x ExpressCard slot (34/54mm)
    1x headphone-out combined with SPDIF
    1x microphone-in
    1x line-in
    1x power supply
    1x 4-in-1 card reader SD/MS/MMC/MS pro
    Built-in 56K, V.92 fax modem
    10/100/1000Mbps LAN
    Integrated Bluetooth® 2.0
    Integrated Wireless LAN (WLAN) solution 802.11a/b/g:
    - Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG

    Backtrack 3 beta works great, there's only one thing which is driving me to buy a new Wi-Fi adapter. I don't seem to be able to inject - it loads the ipwraw and my card is online and working. But the system freezes when I try!!

    The card I'm looking for should also be supported in Ubuntu.. After toying with Bt3 I seem to get some how frustated with Xp!! Also I'm having trouble finding a card for laptops with an external antenna you can replace with a bigger one...

    So any advice on Wi-Fi gear would be much appreciated!!!
    Thanks alot...

    Hello and Welcome

    Get the Alfa 500mW. Search the forum for more information. Very popular and highly recommended.

    Make sure the one you go for has the compatible chipset.
