yes they are different.  The one with G supports 802.11g but is not
compatible with kismac.  The one without G is 802.11b only and is
supported by kismac.

I can't use any other XP packet software - so clearly Apple isn't making it


any easier on purpose.











Can you suggest a cheap USB wifi adapter that would be a good fit?


Preferably something I could get for under $30 online? Preferably Prism2 so


that I can do packet injection. I believe there is a Linksys (WUSB11 - or


something like that) that uses prism2.

I think the MacBook wifi driver isn't quite working at the moment.

I'm running the latest (158 I believe?) build of Kismac, with a Macbook. I'm

details, NONE of these packets (I've let it run up over 1 million packets in


one case) are ever IVs or DATA. I can understand not coming up with any IVs,


but I don't see why I would never ever capture any data. At first I thought


this was just a fluke of my area, but I tried it today in the downtown of a


large city with 20+ access points in range, and still no Data or IVs.











If I'm capturing from access points that are BEING USED at that moment, how


can there be no data?











What's going on here - is this normal?
