Im really interested in this one but scared it just crap

Will it work with backtrack 5 and the aircrack suite i take it wont use my alfa card or can it

Im Open to suggestions

Antennas will work as long as the connector is the same for your card/adaptor.

If you look at the specs of your alpha you will see this...

Antenna Type 1 x 2.4Ghz RP-SMA connector

So you will need a 2.4 Ghz RP-SMA antenna. RP-SMA is the connector type. The first antenna you posted is an N connector. Unless you buy an adapter (like i did to fit a RP-SMA onto an N connector router) then that won't work.

dealextreme.com has some cheap antennas. They will take a while to get to you.
