Re: arp injection for wifi pentesting

In my laptop (Apple iBook G4) isn't present the cardbus slot, so it's
impossible for me to use many of the best wireless cards.
I'm looking for a usb wireless card full linux compatible that supports
packet injection, but for now I have not found usb cards with Prism or
Atheros chip inside.

If I'm not wrong the Netgear DWL-G122 with Ralink chip seems to
partially support packet injection, but I'm not sure about that...
I'm pretty sure that Orinoco usb client based on Hermes chip hasn't the
packet injection feature.

For now I own a ZyDas zd1211 chip based dongle partially working on
linux with latest kernel,  but it does not support packet injection, and
integrated Airport Express too doesn't support injection..

Please can you tell me if there is a good usb device supporting injection??

you are out of luck with aireplay.  i also have the ipw2200 centrino
card and it does not support packet injection (ARP injection).  all
you will be able to do is capture packets.  if you want to speed up
the process by injecting packets you will have to use another wireless
card, say the Orinoco gold series which supports packet injection.
sorry for the bad news but i was pissed off when i found out that my
ibm T42 didnt support packet injection as well.  best of luck.
