Which wireless card for monitor-mode support in the *stock* kernel?
This is driving me nuts. I've got an Orinoco silver card that I wanted
to use with Kismet and/or AirSnort, but I can't put it into monitor mode
(even with the 2.6.12 latest kernel). I've tried downloading the 0.15rc2
version of the drivers and compiling them, but I'm getting some wierd
error like "Invalid module format" or something.
I'm tired of waiting for "out-of-the-box" monitor-mode support for this
card, and I'm ready to get a new one.
Question is: Which one?
To clarify what I'm looking for, I want:
- PCMCIA card with some common external antenna jack (like MMCX).
- "Out-of-the-box" monitor support. By that, I mean that I can
install/boot a stock Debian "kernel-image-2.6.x-686", and then type
"iwconfig eth1 mode monitor" and it *just works*! No downloading
patches, no installing firmware.
- If it's 802.11g, that's great... but it's not mandatory.
In addition, I'd appreciate info on a similar PCI card with a SMA
connector. Again, 802.11g would be nice, but the critical issue for me
is not having to patch/compile anything.
