Can you please provide us with more info on loading different drivers based on the lsusb output, in other words, which drivers to load, how to do that, etc.? If so is this range extender still working for you? This past summer, I was staying in a hotel in the Poconos and, fortunately had taken the week off. And i never use it with VirtualMachines. I was able to capture a WPA2 data capture quickly and easily with it.
