Supported Laptop Models


Samples from the following laptop families/models were physically tested by us as being able to boot and run the OSWA-Assistant™ LiveCD or LiveUSB environment. If your laptop has the same chipsets and CDROMs as these, then it is likely also to be able to boot and run:
(Important note #1: your mileage may vary since specifications between individual models within the same laptop family often differ; we cannot offer any guarantee or warranty that your laptop will be able to boot or run the OSWA-Assistant™)
(Important note #2: all laptop hardware mentioned here refers to the LAPTOP-ONLY, and NOT the wireless adapter! For supported wireless adapters, please read the "Supported Wireless Chipsets" section below!)
(Important note #3: all laptop hardware mentioned here is applicable to the OSWA-Assistant™ only and NOT the MoocherHunterLaw Enforcement Edition, which has its own separate hardware requirements!)

Supported Wireless Chipsets


Specifically, the following 802.11-based chipsets (which at one time or another have been commonly found on retail shelves in SouthEast Asia where we are located) are officially supported by the toolkit :

  • Atheros (driver: MADwifi-ng; PCI, MiniPCI & PCMCIA only; AR5xxx models and below generally supported except for AR5007 and AR5008);
    Supports Master Mode, Monitor Mode, Injection, Managed Mode & Adhoc Mode

  • Prism54 (driver: prism54 FULLMAC; PCMCIA only);
    Supports Master Mode, Monitor Mode, Injection, Managed Mode & Adhoc Mode

  • Realtek RTL8187L (driver: Realtek);
    Supports Monitor Mode, Injection, Managed Mode & Adhoc Mode (note: 8187B NOT supported!)

  • Ralink RT2500 (driver: Serialmonkey);
    Supports Monitor Mode, Injection, Managed Mode & Adhoc Mode

  • Ralink RT2570 (driver: Serialmonkey);
    Supports Monitor Mode, Injection, Managed Mode & Adhoc Mode

  • Ralink RT2860/RT3562 (driver: Ralink);
    Supports Managed Mode & Adhoc Mode

  • Ralink RT2870 (driver: Ralink - Hirte Mod);
    Supports Monitor Mode, Injection, Managed Mode & Adhoc Mode

  • Ralink RT3070 (driver: Ralink);
    Supports Managed Mode & Adhoc Mode

  • Ralink RT61 (driver: Serialmonkey);
    Supports Monitor Mode, Injection, Managed Mode & Adhoc Mode

  • Ralink RT73 (driver: Serialmonkey);
    Supports Monitor Mode, Injection, Managed Mode & Adhoc Mode

  • Intel ProWireless 2200/2915 (driver: IPW2200/2915);
    Supports Monitor Mode, Managed Mode & Adhoc Mode

  • Intel ProWireless 3945 (driver: ASPj IPWRAW);
    Supports Monitor Mode


Also, while not a hardware-native driver, the LORCON abstraction package is also installed to provide support for apps that use it, such as Probemapper.




For those who need even more detailed information, the following list is a non-exhaustive summary of some wireless hardware available off-the-shelf in Singapore that we've physically seen with our own eyes to work with some or all of the relevant software in the toolkit depending on their functionality (Modes).

Where applicable, and usually found on the hardware's stickers or box stickers, the hardware Version No. is VERY important - stick with it!! If you have any other hardware you've confirmed to work, please let us know by emailing:
