manimal Posted May 6, 2007 Share Posted May 6, 2007 so I've just realized that my built in wireless adapter on my laptop doesn't support monitor modes, and has issues in linux (I have to use ndiswrapper with the windows drivers to get it to work). I was wondering if its possible to swap out the built in adapter with an adapter that supports monitor mode, and has better linux support. I can't find any info on it, and someone told me that its probable. when I do "lspci" in the bash, it shows this for my card: Network controller: Broadcom Corporation Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-PCI Card (rev 01) .. emphasis on the mini-PCI card part.. anyone done this? will I need a card that's supported by HP? I should also say that my laptop doesn't have PCMCIA, and only express card, and I've only seen one so far, so I'm not sure if its even supported (the d-link dwa-643) .. plus its $134cnd ...
