> Hey gang. Trying to build out a wifi sniffer (Dell Latitude / Natty) but need a NIC that will do:
> 1) 802.11 a/b/g/n, or at *least* g/n
> 2) Is dual band: 2x2, 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands
> 3) Uses a chipset that has a corresponding driver that allows 'rfmon' or being put into monitor mode (for pcap). Bonus points for raw injection capability.
> 4) Is a PC Card / PCMCIA... I guess USB would work too, but prefer PC card.
> Anybody know of a support and Kismet-tested card that fits the bill here??

Something atheros is your best bet. Ubiquity makes some. PCMCIA isn't going to happen (old 16bit isa-style standard). Some cardbus (32-bit PCI-style) still exists, many will now be expresscard.
