   im jus starting out at a security firm and have been put in
charge of getting my own kit because the person in charge is on
leave. i will be starting out with wired network audits but i have
been given a free run of the wireless section too. 


             could u recommend some cards that are supported by all
security test software? eg airsnort/kismet? will i need to purchase
one of each chipset? ie prism2/atheros. i need windows and linux support. thanks

I have an Orinoco Gold PCMCIA card, with an external antenna.
It has atheros chipset, and works out of the box with madwifi linux

I recommend to get one of these.

Best regards,
