Hi guys,

So I'm pretty much new to all this sort of thing. I'v been around computers for quite sometime, but never dabbled into networking security, or Linux, but recently picked up an interest in it, so thought 'd give it a go.

First thing though, and I'm sure many have hear this question asked many times, but I'm looking for an adapter that supports monitor mode, packet injection etc.. the features needed for the task.
I decided on the TP-Link TL-WN722N, as online, it seemed to be the go-to wifi adapter, especially for noobies, but, unfortunately it would seem, the 'Version 1' adapter (with the Atheros chipset) is no longer available, and the newer 'Version 2', & 'Version 3', both include an unsupported Realtek chipset.

Before looking at the other options I came across, I thought I'd have a look to see if any others came with that Atheros chipset, and I came across a Generic brand wifi N, with the needed Atheros AR9271, which also mentions using the TPLink TL-WN722N driver. I was wondering, what are your thoughts on this adapter compared to the TP-Link + other compatible adapters? Would it still perform just as well ?
