What wireless adapters would be best for Linux? I need something thats USB interface. and What would give me the best range, an external, internal, or dipole adapter?

hope your not looking for any monitor mode functions, as the only usb dongle based wifi card that works with that is the cace airpcap card (uber expensive)

BUT I did find this little nice thing when I was rooting though newegg!!

This would be a great tool for anyone with a newer laptop (like me) that needs either a fully supported monitor mode network card or a wireless N card that does not have a pcmcia/express card slot.

anyone here know if it works well with linux?

Is a list of working wifi cards with linux. See that big assed list of usb devices? Any of those will work with linux. Maybe not all will do moonitor mode, but all the alpha's will. Just click on one to see the pro's and con's of each adapter. I'd go with an Alpha.
