    gives the answer, encoring to one of the results there are 2 revisions of the card, one using "Marvell W8300" the other "Atheros "

    You should be able to find a nice card via one of these pages (and their linked pages)

    thanks

    thanks, i bought the d-link g520 with the atheros chipset. what programs can i use to sniff out networks? the windows setting are not picking any up. just for the record i have no intention of using the software for any wrong doing. i just need it until i get my router going.

    1) it's not called "sniffing"* :P it's either "war driving" or "eavesdropping"
    2) If Windows doesn't detect and connect to any open nets there is probably none around you (Windows, esp Win XP tends to ignore your settings and connect to any open net regardless of your settings - it sort of war drives for you (with linux you can force it to connect as you tell it to, there are tools to search for APs though)).

    * sniffing is running the card in promiscous mode, and then usually over a wired net (not interesting if you're on a switched net, hubbed nets are another story though... :/ )
