Yeah, there is prism2 support. I think the driver you are looking for is linux-wlan-ng.

I don't know if this is the place to ask, but do you guys know if there is prism2 support for usb devices in linux? I just installed Gentoo on an external drive and can't get the airport extreme working. Thanks!


p.s. I guess it doesn't matter though cause I have an 802.11n network. It'd still be nice though!

Yep. There are even real Mac OS drivers in case you want to use it for non-sniffing purposes. See http://www.macosxhints.com/ article.php?story=20050201091946184 for details.

Although, if you just want to use it with Kismac, it's probably best to leave the drivers uninstalled because they tend to get in the way.

The D-Link DWL-G122 (rev b1 at least, maybe other revs) is a USB ralink device.

How long before they will support injection do you think? Also, sorry that I can't help Lawrence, thats really too bad... Also (macuser), are there usb ralink cards, because I'm on an iBook (G4) without pcmcia slots...

Prism2 cards are actually b only, and the network is only in g
traffic. Wait for ralink cards to support injection. Yes, this is said to be the univeral solution to everything. But thats why we are doing
