Topic: New, interested, need HELP!!
I really don't know how Orinoco has managed to keep selling almost entirely on name recognition. Ever since they were bought by Proxim the support for them has been poor. I would argue that Senao's 2511s are much better cards. They support dipole antenna configurations and have higher transmit power...

Those are pretty good, but isn't 9 supposed to be g, not 6? It looks more like FABFABFABFABulous! lol
Bah. With no disrespect intended, I think it's silly to think that the WWWD is no longer needed, and that it has been "taken as far as it can go." Participation was growing every year, and it was acting as a sort of social nexus for getting wardrivers together for road trips. Hrmph.

Heh, do I look like I use anything low power? I have 200mw Senaos and SMCs (Z-Com).

No torrent yet, but there is an old skool direct download available at n37.org.

A friend of mine and myself have started producing a weekly radio show about hardware. We talk about what the industry is doing and where we think its going. Coincidentally in the first episode I pimp wigle rather hard. In any case, I'm trying to generate some buzz and get some feedback. Check out N...
I figured that after I started spending hours at my desk surrounded by CRTs, some of them old, and absorbing whatever my AP and client adapters were doing, I would definitely get cancer eventually. Seriously, we all will, by which I mean more or less every American alive today. Nobody can live in th...

That depends on your pigtail. As I said in an earlier post, your card has an MC connector, so you will have to get an MC to N pigtail. If the N connector on the pigtail is male, the antenna cable will need to be female and vice versa.

Topic: Data requests
Will do; however I think the wigle devs should rethink the current system. As the database continues to grow into the millions the county-size mappacks are going to fail to represent major urban areas with any real accuracy.

8.5 dBi is a good rating for an omni, the only way you're going to get much higher is to buy one that's several feet long and create a custom mount for it (something I have done personally, that white line on the right side of me in my avatar is such an antenna).

Both look decent, the Buffalo card uses a Broadcom chipset (or so I hear), so Netstubler should be able to use it through NDIS 5.1 (don't know about Linux/kismet support). Of course you also realize you'll need to get a pigtail to adapt the antenna to the card (which uses MC).

Topic: Data requests
Sooooo... I know that Digle pulls only a limited number (60k?) of APs per geographic area (county), but is that really a good idea? Do I have to create custom mappack definitions just to get the real data for a county (whee load King County Part 1, Part 2, Part 3)? How are the top 60k chosen?
