    PCMCIA for Network Security

    I currently have Broadcoms BCM4318 wireless chip on my laptop
    and im looking to get a new pcmcia,i didn't try using my current chip since it gave me headaches in the past, but now i need a wireless connection.
    I have a network security course and im looking for a card that will support all Network Security features like Monitor mode and such required
    i check the supported for Ubuntu on
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...CardsSupported

    but like i said,i need one for NS reasons and im not sure which are fully supported for the job

    thanks

    the Netgear WG511 and the 3Com® Wireless 11a/b/g PC Card with XJACK® Antenna

    if there atheros someone correct me if i'm wrong but from what i understand
    atheros is the best way to go ... personally i'd go netgear over 3com but it's more personal preference ... but i looked up the cards you picked and ya both should work just fine
