The only way to find out if it works for pen-testing is by testing it first. Plug it into your machine and then issue the following command IWCONFIG. You should see the following interface WLAN0, if it doesn't show up, you will need to download the proper drivers for it.

The drivers can be downloaded from the wireless manufacturer website. Once the card is functioning properly, you could try putting it in monitor mode by issuing the following command

ifconfig WLAN0 UP

airmon-ng start wlan0

Once airmong-ng is running, it will create an interface called mon0, which will be our monitor interface.

Open up WireShark and select mon0, you should see packets populating, note to verify that monitor mode is supported by your wireless card, you should see IP addresses from other clients besides yourself, if NOT than your card does not support monitor mode, and it can not be used for pen-testing.

If that's the case, you should look into buying an Alfa Wireless Card, like the one that Darren uses.
