AirPcap alternative?

I saw this for sale online http://www.crownhill.co.uk/product.php?prod=1779&ref=wireless-analysis

its called the AirPcap but its £200 odd is there any cheaper alternative wireless card or device that would support the same

i know that it uses http://www.winpcap.org/ winpcap
and i know there are other wirieless devices out there that support winpcap which do not cost the earth.

Get yourself BT4 or pentoo, both are Linux LiveCD's (DVD in the case of BT4) and have wireless auditing tools included. All you need is a PC with a wireless NIC supported by the tools available (all should be explained in the readme's and helpfiles) Both tools are free.
