Prism3 Chipsets?

Filed under: Wireless — Nathanxr @ 1:03 am

Hi everyone, I did a brief search of the forum and didn’t return any results but I was wondering if anyone here could point me in the right direction?
I want to get a b/g (maybe a as well) pc card for my laptop, but I have particular requirements. I’d like a Prism 2.5 or 3 chipset, good transmit /recieve power and a jack for an external antenna… I’m having alot of trouble finding something like this.
The reason I want a prism chipset is for application support and monitor mode.

Any suggestions or ideas for a product I should look at?

    Mate, forget about prism3 - it’s a crappy chipset - goto seattle wireless to confirm that. Prism 2 or prism2.5 are best. Get the Z-COM card 200/300mW with two MMCX connectors, that should be more . It works well under windows (netstumbler) nad linux (kismet, airsnort, aircrack, etc).
    here is the link for the mentioned card:

    Alternatively I would suggest use ATHEROS chipset based cards (if you are after monitor mode:).
