RE: Wireless Cards for pen testing?



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
