Granted I don't bust into people's homes and check out their setup so my experience can only account for a small percentile...but I can only present my facts. I am not doubting that there are other Linux users in my neighborhood, it just seems like they choose not to be known for whatever reason. Do you really want me to poll the computer scientists just to prove a point?
Ok, if you do not have the vocabulary or know the symbols to look for(most basic skill), it is a little like hunting deer without knowing what they look like. In either case you are not going to find what you are looking for.
Poor choice of words on my part, I did not mean to infer you. I meant that some company (riaa/mpaa like in nature).
All three of those do work IF you use the nemesis driver instead of the manufactures drivers, which is why I specifically mentioned it. With this driver it seems to function acceptably. I assume that the nemesis driver is newer than that list you used.
And wait, I didn't list a driver? I used the actual wireless cracking program's site as evidence. Nemesis driver or not, they go out of their way to mention that. Can you post a link to the Nemesis driver that specifically says "this will work better than any other driver" or something similar. I would like to take your word for it, however, since you mentioned as evidence in your argument I feel it is your responsibility to back up your claims. And if its a hardware issue causing the malfunction of the card, then a different driver will most likely not fix the problem.

The symbols I was referring to have nothing to do with Linux, which seems to be what your first paragraph is inferring.
I forgot that the nemesis driver is just the modified(for linksys) hirte driver.
"One thing to keep in mind is you can find an official, better working driver for this chipset from Ralink's website. This driver DOES support monitor mode but DOESN'T support injection. Seeing as how injection is kind of necessary to the point of thats probably why you got Backtrack, this is the answer for you"
You will note that the driver is stored on aircrack-ng.org. I suspect that the link that you posted is just dated. On the original driver series it did not work very well. Newer drivers came along that do, but your link just did not get updated.
IF I recall correctly the reason the original driver series did not work very well had to do with the driver not properly handling the transmit power control on the chipset. The driver would leave the power at full blast all the time until it overheated. The newer drivers do not seem to have a problem.
