Quick presentation

This wireless adapter is made by Cacetech works on Windows but is a bit special. That's not a wireless adapter like every USB stick you can buy, you can capture 802.11 packets as easily as you're capturing data with Wireshark on a wired adapter. And you can capture on channel 1 to 14 included. Just plug it in, starts the control panel to change some settings and then start capturing data with your favorite ethernet capture program. An SDK is given to create your own program that can work with this adapter. A wireless IDS for windows is now easily doable.

Support of this adapter will start in release 0.7.1. In 0.8, it will be fully supported.
