Wireless PenTesters Hardware

Hello List,

I have been contracted by my company to perform a wireless hack for a large company. I am trying to figure out what 
hardware I need for this..

I have done this before but It has been a while..

What type of wireless card(s) do I need to buy? I have used Orinoco 200Mw before but it was only 802.11B...

I'm guessing I need a card that handles A/B/G?

I am also interested in Evil-Twin attacks.. does this mean I need (2) cards or should I get one of those HOstAP cards 
that acts as an AP?

I know the client is probably going to be using WPA or something similar.. so my best bet may be to use the strongest 
signal and try to get some of the users machines to lock into my fake AP...

But then how would you route them back into the network using another card if you can't associate..

SO do I need a 802.11A/B/G card to do wireless hacks?
