To be specific, the driver in question is for Ralink RT2500 or RT2571
(can't remember exactly, it's the USB one) chipsets. The Most
prevalent devices with this chipset are the D-Link DWL-G122 B1 and
Linksys WUSB54G v4, though there are others. Other than this
chipset, the only other 802.11g chipset that seems to be "injection-
friendly" is the Atheros. The Atheros chipsets don't come in a USB
version though, so they could (if an injection driver was written)
only be used by Macs with pcmcia (assuming you want a laptop). As
the new MacBooks either have no such slot or an incompatible
ExpressCard slot, that wouldn't help very much.

If it happens, I think this will be the first hardware to support injection into G networks. And it's USB so it should work on almost any mac.

"is being worked on" refers to efforts under way in the KisMAC team to
support g networks? In general or just this particular piece of
