I have a powerbook 12" without pcmcia slot and I have look for a good
device for wardriving .
I have found Orinoco USB Gold and it works very good for passive
attack(kismet,airsnort) but I dont find a solutions for attive attack
(many use the HostAP driver support).
Is realy possibile use the orinoco pcmcia-usb bridge with a prism card
with HostAP driver ?
I have read in ML that :
You can also buy Orinoco *USB*, crack it open and put a Prism 2/2.5 card
instead of the Lucent card that's inside. Then try to merge orinoco_usb
with linux-wlan-ng and load tertiary firmware on it.
Is test this configuration ?
Because I have ask a similar question on Orinoco ML and I have got this
l> Can I use the usual driver for prism 2 card PCMCIA or I must use always
l> the same orinoco driver?
You must use always orinoco_usb.c driver. Orinoco_usb.c is driver for
ezusb - pcmcia-usb bridge. This driver for bridge cooperates only with
orinoco.c driver. "orinoco.c" driver contains drivers for hermes-I,
prism-2, prism-2.5, symbol cards and maybe something else. So your
prism card in USB-PCMCIA adapter will function in the same way like
prism card in PCMCIA laptop slot with orinoco_pcmcia driver. You must
know, that orinoco driver is not adviced for prism cards, espescialy
it doesn't work properly with kismet.
