Looking for a USB wireless adapter that supports promiscuous mode in wireshark.

I've tried, but the on-board wireless adapter doesn't support sniffing packets.

I'd like to buy a wireless USB adapter that works well with ubuntu and wireshark in promiscuous mode.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

The Alfa-AWUS036H (http://www.data-alliance.net/-strse-73/Alfa-AWUS036H-500mW-USB/Detail.bok) may be the one you want. I haven't got one: but I was looking for a usb wireless adapter that would go into monitor mode and the Alfa-AWUS036H was recommended; and I believe its ability to go into monitor mode also means it will go promiscuous. Ask a vendor. It really does come highly recommended.
