powerfrog Posted May 20, 2013 Share Posted May 20, 2013 I am working an R&D project for the navy. I need to attach 6 USB 802.11a adapters to a single linux laptop running Ubuntu. The devices have to do the following from the command line: 1) work in Ad-hoc mode 2) have removable antenna 3) Must be able to change frequencies manually 4) must be able to get RSSI value 5) must work at the 5 ghz 802.11a range I have bought the following devices Alfa and Roswell http://www.amazon.com/Alfa-AWUS051NH-802-11a-Wireless-9dBi/dp/B002BFO490 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833166046 I installed the drivers under ubuntu but they both dont work under adhoc mode. They both do work fine under mac and windows but I gotta run them under Linux. Does anyone know of any adapters that will meet the requirements I listed above? Basically what I need is a madwifi driver that will work on usb devices. Thanks Joe Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
