;) Hi, I want to test the security of some friends wireless networks using my laptop and a pcmcia wireless network card.

My preference is for one which will work well with both Windows (NetStumbler) and Linux (Kismet).

Any advice on the best cards out there, how much I could expect to pay for one, and where is the best place to buy. I understand I may have to be careful when purchasing, because some chipsets are better than others.

Any help appreciated :tazz:

:) Hi Yall!

This is a legitimate question - I am asking it because I want to get into wireless security and offer help to domestic and business customers.

I am not someone who wants to get into 'wardriving' for criminal or plain mischievous purposes - so how come, no replies but plenty of views ;)

:tazz: Well, there's loads of info out their on the web, guess I'll have to look elsewhere, but I thought this would be as good a starting point as any.

:) Any brave souls out there with views on the best hardware
