Best supported USB WLAN sticks


I am looking for well supported WLAN USB sticks (the ones that look like flash drives).

I was looking at the ASUS WL-167g using the ural-linux driver, but I have heard that Monitor mode doesn't work with that driver, and that is something I would want.

So I am trying to get some input about what USB WLAN sticks you have all used and how well they worked.

prism2 with wlan-ng. But it is only 802.11b. I have an atmel, but it doesn't fully support monitor mode.

ASUS WL-167g NIC - don't bother

I've had many problems with trying to install this "easy to install" software to get the ASUS WL-167g NIC running.

Has anyone had any success on FC5 or Red Hat 9? ASUS have washed their hands of support suggesting I change the source code to fit the OS.

I'm using a Belkin F5D7050 with a Ralink RT2500USB chipset. It works well with the native RT2570 driver in Suse and PCLinuxOS, but not so good with Kubuntu(?).

However, it works *incredibly* well on all three distributions with ndiswrapper and the latest Ralink driver.
