Need help choosing appropiate wifi card
Greetings. I am buying a laptop and I want a wifi pcmcia card capable of injecting traffic with connector/s for an antenna and compatible with linux. I have like 2 hours searching I am very confused about what chipsets should I look for, but I think Atheros and Prism works fine under linux. Anyway please if you know what my solution would be please help me. I saw this on ebay taht caught my attention:
Is a prism 2.5 chipset.
Thanks in advance.
This one seems nice too:

Don't go for anything USB
I've got a WPC55AG (Atheros) and it works really well with just about anything. The only drawback is the lack of an external antenna.
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

i would suggest orinoco gold 8084, working fine with most of packet injection application.
one of the great day in my life when i found antionline.com

The Atheros chipset seemed considerably more capable than any other I've tried... its main cool feature is operating in several modes at once (e.g. it can be an accesspoint AND a station).

personally i'd go with the Alfa 500mW USB Wireless B/G Adapter. It has a realtek RTL8187L chipset which works fine for injection.
But you mentioned you wanted a pcmcia card, so i'd suggest you check out the following link:
or maybe even the following discussion, which will either have you more confused or will help you decide :
Do tell us what you finally decide on and your feedback on it.
