USB wireless adapter ! "linksys wusb54gc"


I want to buy USB wireless adapter. I make a search about the best one that support monitor mode on linux and windows.

I found that "linksys wusb54gc" is a good one.

can any one have it advice me if it a good choice or not. and if it really support monitor mod and packet injection, does it work fine with wpa_supplicant and if it need to install any TR2xx drivers .

Sorry for my English

Thankx in advance

Did it work in Linux ? (out-of the box or did you need to use 'ndiswrapper') ?
What Linux version do you use ?
