    wireless NIC (USB ESSENTIAL)


    Lo all, I am looking for a nativlly supported wireless network card.. it must be possible to set the nic to promiscuous mode and it must also be supported by GPL licenced drivers. i am not prepared to use ndiswrapper. USB is essential as this is for a laptop! somthing with a decent range would be preferential as it will be required to connect to possibly distant networks of variing ranges. your advice is much appreciated!!

    I 've had some luck with the DLink DWL 122. It's an older b card, but it works with the prism2_usb driver from linux-wlan-ng.
    But since it's a laptop, what's wrong with PCMCIA? If you're open to PCMCIA, the Netgear WG-511 is amazing. Just e-mail me and I'll send you the firmware, you can download the driver from prism54.org
