well i was trying to just get some unsecured wireless that is just out of rear. but then i was wondering what is a good set up people are using for war driving gear. idk if lap top card that has an external antenna would be best or if usb device with external antenna would. i also found usb devices with 8dbi dish antenna's all in one combo. well if anyone wants to share their rigs it would be greatly appreciated. please show specs/ links and maybe pics.

ok so i see a lot of people posting questions about how to improve the range/signal/speed etc of their laptops internal card or which card to get. so heres a few pics i posted as an example, the camera is charging so ill post more later.

heres a couple of mini pci express wireless cards the internal cards will use U.fl connectors for the antennas mimo a/b/g/n dual band cards will have 3 connectors while the b/g or a/b/g cards typically only have two in this pic ive shown both, and next to them are two different antenna options you can choose from. the first on top are flexible 3dbi dipole antennas that you can use internally and they flex to fit inside your laptop case. the second is U.fl to rp-sma pigtails, these are very useful for attaching any type of external antennas you'd like to your internal card. most internal cards have just a small panel on the bottom that gives you access to the card, i just drill 3 tiny holes and run the pigtails through.

ubiquiti has very nice wireless gear. theyre kinda pricey but i have the ubiquiti sr71 usb card, the srx 300, the new sr71x card that came out and ive built a couple routers with thier router station board and a couple xr2 mini pci cards. most of if not all of thier products feature an atheros chipset of some type, i would also check out oxfordtec.com for internal wireless cards. i have a few of thier sparklan a/b/g/n atheros cards and am very happy with their performance. and sparklan provides great wireless management apps for thier cards.

hi,

this is my current wardriving setup (although i dont really do much now)

i have a HP Compaq nc8000 running an install of backtrack 3 with extra applications (including freeRadius pwnage patched and latest aircrack suite)

laptop has internal bluetooth type b so i can do bluetooth "auditing"

and i have 4 usb wireless cards.

2 netgear wg111v2 (use rtl8187 chipset)

these have no external antenna sockets but are ideal little cards for just basic use.

one is standard and the other is mounted inside a large Milo Tin as a cantenna.

also i have another one with an external antenna that has a fair amount of power.

my 4th card doesnt have a great deal of power but is perfect for running as an access point.

ill update this post sometime with what the other cards are, later as im at work atm. i might even include some pics of my setup

i have 5 antennas.

the cantenna above, this has one of those camera mounts that stick to glass.

2 small whip antennas (gutless)

1 magnetic base antenna that has 2 coils on it.

and 1 biquad. i only made this recently and havnt had a chance to test this during wardriving.

also note that all this has been done on a very, very reduced budget.

I just use an old Ipaq 3670 with a pcmcia expansion pack added on running a compaq WL110 wireless card. I've got a 7dBi antenna attached to the card. The Ipaq is running an old version of Windows Mobile with Mini Stumbler. It works great for reconnaissance. I love to see what people have named their AP. Funny one's include, "ItchyMelvin" and "Our connection not yours".
