Yea, i bought one of these from a different seller that
claimed drivers for windows/osx/linux but failed to
mention that the drivers are so crappy theyre almost
unusable. In OS X, i can get active mode to work with
kismac, but i cant even connect to an AP. In linux, i can
get it working with kismet in monitor mode but i think
frames get mangled and the results are not stable. I think
the drivers are getting better so maybe in the future they
will work....
