I recently used this ubiquiti a/b/g pcmcia card (http:// www.keenansystems.com/store/catalog/product_info.php? cPath=2&products_id=150) in my powerbook G4 and it scanned the "a" channels in Kismac. I did not detect any "a" access points, so I don't know if it actually works. Something built into the Atheros drivers that gives it access to the "a" frequencies. This is an Atheros based card.

I don't think any 802.11a support is planned--it's not very popular compared to b/g. Plus, you need at least two radios to do anything interesting, which would mean adding an atheros a/b/g card--to my knowledge, the only card with 802.11a support and cracking-capable drivers. Unfortunately, those are all pcmcia, which, as far as I know, means you can't use it with the new macbooks. If you have any need to play around with 802.11a (I did once), you might want to look into a non-mac (preferably with two pcmcia slots) and the back|trac live cd.

What about 802.11a (considering that then new Intel Macs support it)?
