Thanks for the word; i'll give the adaptor a whirl. I anticipate you to mean this device does the passive mode thing? Are you aware of any other sources that vett other nics for Kismac-suitability?
Kind of you (and Brad) to reply to me. Many thanks. I'm more of a noc technician, a layer 1/layer 2/layer 3 guy, config routers and swuitches, but when i have time I like to mess about and see what's out there, keep my layer 4 and above knowledge current. Kismac is a WONderful tool, and also learning platform. I follow this list for that reason. Maybe I can be of help to someone else someday.

Last question: is 'gack' also a verb, or merely an exclamation?  =/8 )


warm regards,

Eric Lecht

work right, and to sign the petition...can anyone point out USB-attached nics that'll work? If such exists? Happy to do the reading,
if i could find it.

In case my earlier response was masked by the HTML garbage inserted by my mail client, here's a plain text answer:

Get a DLink DWL-122 USB WiFi adapter. It's perfect for the task, and cheap (about $20 from Amazon [at least Amazon in Europe] or on eBay).

If you want to mess about with directional antennas too, go for this site: http://www.usbwifi.orcon.net.nz/

Hope that helps... and hope I've killed off the HTML-ifying of my messages...
