Well, I got the card and tried it out i did get a better signal considering I used the built in antenna. But not that much of a difference and didn't fry the board like some vendors say it would do. Now for anybody who decides get one I would what until they come out with the "optional" SMA connector and as of now it's undecided. Now for for using it with Aircrack it will not work because the last patched MADWIFI drivers that the creator for "Aircrack" made don't support G4, G5 or G6 Atheros chipsets they support only G2 chipset and with Devine (creator) who has vanished off the face of the earth there is no saying if there will be any more "Aircracks" coming out, with that said the card would be great for windoze apps like netstumbler etc. But recommend waiting for the SMA "optional" connector and use that with a Rover Portable Laptop Mount 2.4GHz 5.5dBi Antenna or something similar.
