Question RFMON mode native wifi card support.


Hello All!

I need to know which wifi card can I purchase that will work with Linux natively without ndiswrapper and will work in RFOM mode?

Thanks,

I don't have a full list or anything, but from my personal experience I have had luck with RTL8180 devices, as well as Prism based cards.

Ok, thanks. How are these mounted? Will I still have to use ndiswrapper? Or are the kernel headers enough?
