You probably didn't notice an increase in packets while downloading
with your airport extreme because the ae is 802.11g and the usb is
b. Therefore, the b adaptor is not going to be able to catch all of
the packets. I have also noticed that re-injection doesn't seem to
work on a g base station either when using a usb adaptor. I have
used de-authentication successfully though.

there are a few things I noticed with my dwl 122 card, and I don't
know if they are right or now.
First of all, deauthentication doesn't work, but that might be my router.
Second, I was downloading a linux iso with my AE card at several
100kb/s, and capturing at the same time with my dwl 122. Traffic
captured did not increase as fast as my actual download speed was. I
don't know if this was caused by using the same machine for both.
Thirdly, authentication flood works in that I see all the bogus
clients in the list, but packet count doesn't really increase
significantly. IV and inj packets stay at 0.
So, I was just wondering if that is normal, or if it's a bug.
