  • Best WiFi PCI Card?

    Who makes the best 802.11b,g PCI card? I will be using an external antenna.

    Is range the only feature to look at?

        I was just on Cisco's site. It doesn't look like they have a PCI card with 802.11g and a dettachable antenna. They have one with 802.11b w/ dettachable. But the g card has an attached antenna?

          BTW, you spelled both Aironet and Orinoco wrong. Makes it tough to .

            It seems from what I've read after I bought my D-Link PCi card, that Orinco is the prefered/popular card. I personally have had good performance from my D-Link, truly plug & play, good range (300+ ft.) and fast speed. What more could you ask for?

                  Oops sorry, smoking too much crack I guess. Maybe if I cut down I could afford that Cisco Aeronet card and a Ferrari, and throw away all my DLink and Nissan crap that works perfectly and is reasonably priced.

                    What do you mean? Am I going to do any wardriving?

                    Yes, I might "borrow" some bandwidth on occasion.

                      If youre gonna do any wardriving you need to get a USB Orinoco gold. There are no PCI cards that are supported by Netstumbler.

                      If you're gonna do wardriving, you gotta get an Orinoco. And they have external antenna ports on the USB clients, too.

                        BUT if you are using Win XP more cards are supported. I have a D-Link PCMCIA card and netstumbler works just fine.

                          Hmm I am using a Belkin PCI .11g card with netstumbler with no problems. It is even a broadcom chipset. Where there is a will there is a way.

                            Netstumbler works for me too, although I haven't used it that much.

                              might wanna do some more research there. Netstumbler works great with a lot of different cards, especially on xp. I'm using it with my Msi pci card just fine
