Review: Dealextreme WIFI Dongle

Category : PC

I just got the new wifi card I ordered from dealextreme, and what suprised me was that it was bundled with a Benini Linux Live Disc. And from that linux distro you can actually run a wifi password cracker. Also comes with a simple guide to cracking WEP/PSK etc. I tried on my own router with WEP, and it found the key within minutes!

It only costs 23.8 USD, and IMO its worth it!
