Why don't the wireless sniffers work with usb wireless adapters? They only seem to work with add on cards of certain mfg's.

What do you mean they don't work, you mean that they don't pick them up or you can't use a product such as netstumbler w/ a USB wireless card?

That's the problem on a laptop, only so many places to add things. USB is nice because it leaves one add on card slot open.

I personally have never tried to use netstumbler with a USB wireless card, i've always used the built in one my comp.

Here's a list of compatabilities w/ netstumbler, it doesn't say anything about USB cards

None of the wireless sniffer say anything about supporting usb. What is it about usb that is a problem?

Thanks for the link. I was wondering if they worked them or not.

I disagree, but it's your life. Do what you want….each of us has the right to go about how we feel.
