I am after a card that is 802.11b complient, works in ad hoc mode under
linux, can sniff WEP packets, has a jack for an external antenna and does
11Mbs. Oh yeah, I also want it to be cheap!
- From what I understand, if I want to sniff WEP packets I need a card with the
The hard thing seems to be finding out which cards support an external
antenna and which cards are fully standards compliant in ad-hoc mode.
- From the ZoomAir website it looks like the 4105 supports an antenna but the
4100 doesn't. But the 4105 is a PCI card.
The compaq website doesn't mention anything about connecting external
antennas. I also found the Wireless howto a bit confusing when it says
"Compaq (rumored to be selling a rebadged Samsung card - on the other hand,
the WL 110, WL 210 and WL 215 are Orinoco cards)". Does this mean these cards
don't have the PrismII chipset? I can't find any other compaq cards.
The DLINK DWL-650 website mentions an "internal patch antenna supporting
diversity". Not sure what this means.
any help would be appreciated, thanks Iain.
