-Which card to purchase is a hard question to answer.  Each person's criteria is somewhat different, such as one may require 802.11n capability, or may require it to work via virtualization.  However, having said that, if money is not a constraint then the following cards are considered the best in class:+Which card to purchase is a hard question to answer.  Each person's criteria is somewhat different, such as one may require 802.11ax capability, or may require it to work via virtualization.  However, having said that, then the following cards are considered the best in class:
  
   * Alfa AWUS036ACH (a/b/g/n/ac) is the best performing card, but the driver can be unstable enough to crash your kernel   * Alfa AWUS036ACH (a/b/g/n/ac) is the best performing card, but the driver can be unstable enough to crash your kernel

 The "-p" parameter controls the amount of threads used for bruteforcing the passphrase; Aircrack-ng has other tasks using the CPU as well. The "-p" parameter controls the amount of threads used for bruteforcing the passphrase; Aircrack-ng has other tasks using the CPU as well.

 +===== "device descriptor read/64, error -110" with Ralink rt28xx driver in dmesg =====
 +
 +Prior to this message, it can be seen that the device connected on a USB port with xhci_hcd, indicating USB 3.0.
 +
 +This issue happens mostly in virtual machines, when the USB port is set to 3.0. To work around the issue, power off the virtual machine, edit USB settings of the VM and set it to 2.0.

 +===== Where can I find airmon-ng on Windows or MacOS? =====
 +
 +[[airmon-ng]] is a Linux/FreeBSD script only. There is no version for Windows, MacOS, or other OS at this time.
