EDIMAX EW-7318USG Wireless LAN Hi-Gain Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g USB 2.0 Up to 54Mbps Wireless Data Rates

Pros: This card DOES work out of the box in BackTrack 4, either Live or Installed. It does NOT work out of the box for BackTrack 3. It did NOT work out of the box for me in Ubuntu 9.04, but I WAS able to get it working with minimal effort. Packet injection works fine. Monitor mode works fine. The range is decent. I pick up about 30 networks from my bedroom in my apartment. You can also connect a bigger antenna since it uses a standard connector. Not a bad card, especially for such a low price.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: This device is 50mW. The ALFA is 500mW. This device works fine. I would, however, like to see a live demo of these two devices side by side though, just to see how much better a 500mW device compared to a 50mW device.
