AirPcap is the only card I have seen for windows that can do monitor mode by default, as it is its main purpose anyway. I have it on a USB drive and it works fine off of it.

Most cards should work with Netstumbler on Windows by default, as it doesn’t need to be in monitor mode to do it’s job of finding access points.
You would need to check a linux HCL for the cain and abel airpcap airpca; use to see if it can do what you want. Passive or Promiscuous mode?
Posted September 14, I’m going to look into a suitable Linux distro for what I need to do. Posted September 13, Most distro sites have info on what hardware was tested and has drivers for stuff. Even if a card is capable of monitor mode under linux, does not mean you can under cain and abel airpcap as they do not have drivers written for windows to do this the same way you can in linux.
Posted August 28, I think you mean Promiscuous mode, as you should be able to do promiscuous mode on most cards by default. Most wireless adapters restrict access either in cain and abel airpcap or firmware to the ‘lower’ network aidpcap which you need access to do things like ARP spoof attacks and the like. Thank you very much digip, That was pretty much everything I needed to know for the time being.
As for things like Monitor mode and packet injection, windows doesn’t do monitor mode by default without an adapter designed for it. Or does it absolutely have to be a AirPcap adapter?

Configuring Cain to Sniff Passwords on Wireless LAN Adapter
Cain and Able just allow you do do MITM attacks, so as long as you are already on the access point, you use Cain to do the MITM attack and something like Wireshark to grab all the packets to search for things like passwords, etc, but should work with your card in promiscuous mode.
Just have to copy any DLL files it creates outside of its folder to its base folder when moving cain and abel airpcap files to a flash drive.
I know i had a portable version of cain and able and all i did was copy airpcpa dll’s into the root directory and it worked. Posted August 29, Sign In Sign Up. Posted September 6, Archived This topic is now archived and is closed to further replies. cain and abel airpcap
TROUBLESHOOTING: CAIN & ABEL
Atheros works great for backtrack. I can’t remember all the files it creates but that is what I remember doing to get it to work off the drive. You probably are wanting to do Monitor mode though, which is where Cain and abel airpcap comes in to play for windows.
By RogueCitizenAugust 28, in Security. Sorry if this was already a topic I didn’t have time to search the forums my flight is boarding. Does it have to be AirPcap? AirPcap is the only card I have seen for windows that can do monitor mode by default, as it is its main purpose anyway. I just want to clarify that the main reason for the airPcap adapter is it in a way ‘guarantees’ access to the physical layer of cain and abel airpcap adapter from what I understand.
