Kind regards,

Cool Eric!!!

Appreciated ur help.. But in reality i desired the "Cisco Valet Connector", and u r probably thinking im stubborn cuz i am. I would like to get this connector. In the web page u showed me there was nothing else than linksys which are more less like the one i'm telling u. I was surfing thorough all of it and the only one i found was the "linksys wusbf54g" so i would like for u to confirm me, if that could be one option cuz i know all this is talking about linux and somehow backtrack 4 is based on linux too as vmware too. In reality everything has even a part made of linux.

Those devices u showed me are too old. I would like to get a list of brand new devices compatible with vmware and backtrack if it is possible.

I seriously appreciate ur help.
Have a good day and take care brotha!!

"LInksys WUSB600N"

Hi there!!

At the end i bump myself with the "LinkSys WUSB600N" which is the nearest i could find compared with the "Valet Connector" which almost goes the same range including n.

In case someone can inform me to make shure this is the one i will appreciate. This is my last decision and i'm at the point of buying it.

THanks in advanced and take care..
See ya.
