How do you handle testing across different 802.11 specs  ie 802.11 a/b/g
with out without the various manufacturers extra's like 'speedboost'

Get an Orinoco Gold with the Hermes2 chipset. Then use the 
Backtrack LiveCD and you're set to pen-test.

Hi,

   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
