Thanks for the information.

Unfortunately the HWUG1 was not listed at http://linux- wless.passys.nl/. I was hoping to verify what was said in those Amazon reviews.

I'm going to dig a bit more for info on this device, but information seems scarce at this point. I'll probably end up just buying it and trying it out myself. Or I may just go with the DWL-G122 or WUSB54G, both have Ralink 2570 chipsets and are said to work well with KisMAC, and try my hand at adding an antenna. Decisions...

I read (somewhere on trac.kismac.de) that wireless g packet injection may very well be implemented in the foreseeable future. Anybody know if this is still the case?

Kismac r228 does not support wireless g usb packet injection under os x according to the kismac irc channel.

This site I found has every ralink wireless driver for os x


You need to translate it in google or something to view it if i remember correctly.

If you get this going with packet injection please post a report. :-)

Hawking's HWUG1 adapter has caught my attention as it has an external
antenna (no soldering needed to get a decent antenna, this is its
major selling point for me.) I've not had much luck discovering what
chipset is in this thing. All I could find were two reviewers on
Amazon who said they got theirs working with their Macs by using
Ralink's RT2571 driver. Does anybody know for sure what chipset is in
this thing? Does anybody have any experience or thoughts on the
device? And most importantly, might this work with KisMAC?

Hawking also makes the HWUG1A, which is their "for Mac Users" version
of the HWUG1. I'm not sure what the difference actually is.

Any information or insight will be much appreciated.
