You're walking a very thin line here. Post about cracking are against the LQ Rules so you'd better have a good reason if you don't want a mod to just close your thread. The article you're referring to mentions that you'll need a wireless network card with 'specific' possibilities. Did you check that your adapter suits those needs?

Kind regards,
