BT4 in Virtualbox - Best Adapter?

All-

I have a choice of Alfa AWUS036H 1000mW or Alfa AWUS036NH 2000mW WiFi adapter and was wondering what would be the ideal choice here?  I've read somewhere that the chipset on the 2000 was not supported for injection...True? does anyone have any experience with these?

Also, I have the Netgear Wg111v3 Usb Wifi adapter and it works fine on BT4 (installed) but not on BT4 VM virtualbox...Am I missing something?

Thanks to all in advance.

I've used the Alfa AWUS036H 1000mW without problem. Well some small problems with my main OS, but with BT as a Live CD or a VM in Virtual Box, it worked fine.

As for the N card.. I haven't used it, but read the same thing. the chip set doesn't support injection. Which is a bit sad, I'd like to be able to do that on N setting :-)

chrisj- thank you for the response, good to hear!

cd1zz - this looks like a good read and greatly appreciate the link.  Looks like BT5 will cover quite a bit in pre-loaded drivers, but blacklisting some others (older).  I'll be slow to transition to 5, but it's good to hear.

I can already tell this forum/website rocks!  everyone seems professional and willing to help the newbs (hello!)

Thank you again!

i got the alfa networks 2000mw version and it works fine, check out my OSWP walkthrough if you want some more information about the supported wifi adapters in Backtrack.
