I have installed aircrack windows version on my dell inspiron 1525 laptop, it has Dell Wireless 1397 card.
Aircrack is not able to detect it.
1) Is this card compatible with Aircrack.
2) If yes, what driver I need to use and / or what do i need to do to get it working.

    Your DELL wireless card is probaly based on the broadcom chip BCM4322 (BCM4311, BCM4312, BCM4321).
    Take a look at this tutorial
    You will be able to run aircrack for windows only if your wireless card is supported in commview drivers or wildpackets drivers.
