USB Wifi card that can do mode master and has detachable antenna


Are there any Wifi cards that can do ALL of the following:

A) USB
B) Mode Master
C) Detachable antenna (RP-SMA)
D) Works in Linux and can do hostapd

I am not looking for a chipset, but an actual card. I haven't been able to find one.

I have the Alfa AWUS036NH, and works like a champ

Alfa has quite a few cards out there; Ever hear of them? I suggest you check them out! Monitor mode and packet injection works also, but of course after patching a few files and recompiling the drivers.

Fedora 18 and the TP Link TL-WN722N

No patching or hacking required. Supports hostapd and master mode.
Don't try the ifconfig mode master test as that is wrong.
