Might I propose a fourth combination: Reading the docs.

ipwlivetap Intel/Centrino Linux ipw2200/3945
Capture interface: 'ethX'
The ipw3945 and patched ipw2200 drivers support a
special mode which allows monitor-mode style sniffing
while remaining associated. Channel hopping is not
possible, as the card is still associated to a
specific AP, but single-channel IDS and sniffing can
be accomplished. See the ipw driver mailing list
archives for information about patching your drivers.
