can someone recommend me wireless USB adaptor, which is supported in CentOS 5.7? I found information about various chipsets, but nothing like
“device X is OK”. In most online stores the chipset is not announced.
Thanks in advance.
I like the RTL8187. I use it for WEP cracking and extended range. Works well. If not this, use the site linked to help identify an alternative:
It is tough to say X device is ok because vendors ignorantly change the chipsets they use and still give devices the same model name/number (and if we’re lucky changing the version number…).
As Justin top-posted ;)
RTL8187 works well. As do RT2500-based wireless chips. Even some Zydas chips (zd1211rw – I believe Backtrack had a patched driver for injection) aren’t all that bad (Atheros bought them  a while back).
Buffalo AirStation WirelessG (U2KG54) USB dongles have an RT2500 chip in them.
