I was wondering if anybody had experience with or knew of any WLAN cards that support Master/AP mode.

Preferably fairly high powered USB network cards that have a detachable antenna (rp-sma). It would be nice if this cards chipset was supported by the standard Ubuntu 10.10 kernel.

I have been searching high and low for a card that fills these requirements but to no avail. Usually i can find a USB high powered card but it does not support Master mode. an example of this would be the ALFA Networks AWUS036H (http://www.alfa.com.tw/in/front/bin/ptdetail.phtml?Part=AWUS036H&Category=105479)

If anyone has input on this subject i would greatly appreciate the help.

Thanks
