I've decided to upgrade my wireless pcmcia card to something *really*
well supported under Linux.
It seems that the Prism chipsets are very well developed so after
perusing the Prism54 supported cards list
(http://prism54.org/supported_cards.php?sort_by=success_cnt) it seems
that the Netgear Wg511 and the 3com OfficeConnect 11g are the pick of
I want something that will do 128bit WEP, WPA (for when it's supported
and yes, I will use a *real* VPN later).
It would be great to have something that allows you to set it up as an
AP and to sniff air traffic for testing work.
Does anyone have any experience with these cards or another on the list?
