Its not much of a problem but I was just wondering..
I'm looking at getting a wifi card for my desktop computer so i can get Internet in my room. I was looking for a card that has the RFMON capture mode but I have found very little information about non-laptop wifi cards about this feature. Do all desktop cards support this mode? do none?
Another option I have is to get the asus@home wifi g card that would allow me to run it as an access point while I'm in windows. Does this card have linux or rfmon driver support?
get a Linksys Speed booster wireless card. Theyre really good and easy to get configured. All you have to do is take the CD that comes with the card and use ndiswrapper to find the driver from the DRIVERS folder in the CD. Its really easy.
Which distro is best for getting a wifi card working? Which of these is easiest to get working on a laptop running Linux: Sandisk Combo CF wifi & 128CF or Enterasys Networks Roamabout PC card (802.11 DS High Rate), or Netgear USB adapter?
