Hello penguin fans,
I am considering buying an orinoco gold or silver pcmcia card for use with knoppix. My orinoco gold usb adapter does not seem to work with knoppix, espec. airsnort/kismet, etc. Does anybody have any experience with this sort of thing or can you reccomend a card?

Lost on the list -Greenprimary

If you can get your hands on one definately get an Orinoco Gold card.
It will work perfectly with all the WiFi goodies: Airsnort, Kismet etc.
I run a WiFi website (http://albanywifi.com) and many of us are Knoppix/Knoppix-STD users and all run Gold cards with great success.
For any ?'s/tips/tricks on Wireless w/Knoppix fell free to browse my forums (http://forum.albanywifi.com).

Thanks for the help. It would have taken me weeks to dig that up.

I can verify what r00t 4orce is saying. I have an Orinoco Gold card and it's always worked flawlessly.
