Smile Best WiFi Card for War driving

I was wondering what brand and model of wifi cards would people suggest to use for War driving, because my intel card just is not going to get the job done. I would also be nice to have an antenna port and is well supported by linux.

Thanks much for your suggestions in advance

Do you have a good reason why we should help you crack into someone else's network? I can think of several reasons why we shouldn't.

Unhappy War Driving

I dont think we should welcome open questions for hacking/cracking on this site. There are reasons for getting a greater knowledge of wireless, say for pen-testing or for knowing how to secure your own or companies site. Perhaps you should ask the question in another way. So you see we cant dismiss questions out of hand but your intentions do not seem honourable.

I've gone war driving before. I had to research wireless cards and how things work. I also had to setup a small network in my friends truck. Doing all the research I did for war driving really taught me a lot. We went around looking for networks, got an idea on how many networks are out there, and learned a lot. We tried different wireless cards and researched why we got better distance from PCI vs PCMCIA among a lot of other things. We did no damage and had no intention on doing damage.

What I'm trying to say, is that some people really do this stuff just to learn what is going on and how things work. Plus it is fun.

Also, I'm trying to say to the original poster that you should just try new things and figure out why it works and why it doesn't. We just went to compusa and bought/return things. We did it like 6 times.
