I recently bought a wireless card, thinking that it would be compatible with kismet and airopeek.
it looks like it isn't but I need to make sure what the chipset is.

I have linux and windows boxes, so any tools you can suggest that would run in windows or linux and tell me what chipset my card has, would be great.

the brand and model is: buffalo airstation WLI-CBG 54 HP

sorry man, I just found this:

Card: Buffalo Tech Turbo G AirStation WLI-CB-G54HP , 54mbps PCMCIA
Chipset: Broadcom 4318
Driver: The drivers included on the Buffalo installation CD did not work. Also tried all available drivers from Buffalo support site. None worked. Instead use the generic Broadcom driver bcmwl5.inf & bcmwl5.sys obtained from HP/Compaq support page ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/softpaq/sp30501-31000/SP30676.exe . Happy to say it works great with no known issues.
Other: I'm using static IP, I have not tried DHCP.
Other: Installed easily with no special configuration editing

thanks a lot :)

Thanks eggster34.
Sorry I was assuming all WLI-CBG 54xxx's were similar chip sets. Never assume <G>.
Keep Everest in mind for future,. Great tool for determining hardware specifics.
