    Ok so here's the deal:

    I have a DWL-650 Dlink Prism2 based WiFi card for my 133 mhz 32 mb toshiba Satalite Pro 440CDX laptop. The laptop dual boots windows 2000 and Knoppix-Std Linux. I can use the Wireless card great in windows 2000 (all networking functions work) except I have a few problems with wardriving style applications.

    1) Can't get the card to work in linux. Have tried Debian, Knoppix, and Knoppix STD. Removing/Inserting the card generates "Card removed" or whatever and says a hex code for manufacturer name and the such. I dunno what to do to get it to work; wlan_ng is on the laptop and so is kismet and all, but no /dev/wlan0 shows up. Is there something I have to do? My only linux experience with a prism2 (or wireless in general) has been on a zaurus. A FAQ or something would be spiffy.

    2) Can't get sniffers to work in windows. I hear netstumbler wants an orinoco chipset, any way around this in windows 2000? Ideally I would just get the card to work in linux and use kismet.

    Many thanks!

    In other news, my laptop is upgrading via ebay. Soon I will have a (Hold your breath) 266 mhz with 64 mb of ram! Still crappy but now twice as much crappy.

    1) either use the latest kernel wifi modules or latest pcmcia with wlan_ng and it should recognize any prism card without any issues. If you still have problems, post your kernel version, modules loaded and your dmesg out put

    2) Why sniff in windows if you can get linux working :)

    .
    I would recommend checking out the Netstumbler Forums( http://www.netstumbler.org/ ). While many that read those forums post here, it's probably a better place for an indepth look at your problem and work arounds.

    Here is a listing of cards that work with Netstumbler .3:

    Version 0.3 works on:
    Lucent Technologies WaveLAN/IEEE (Agere ORiNOCO) Dell TrueMobile 1150 Series (PCMCIA and mini-PCI) Avaya Wireless PC Card Toshiba Wireless LAN Card (PCMCIA and built-in) Compaq WL110 Cabletron/Enterasys Roamabout Elsa Airlancer MC-11 ARtem ComCard 11Mbps IBM High Rate Wireless LAN PC Card 1stWave 1ST-PC-DSS11IS, DSS11IG, DSS11ES, DSS11EG

    That was taken from the Offical Netstumbler FAQ
