I just got my DWL-G122 from
I am happy to report that it is H/W version B1 and F/W version
2.02.  Here is the link if anyone is interested:

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.
