    I am searching a USB network wifi adapter with active and passive scanning support in KisMAC.
    On linux, I normally use Senao hardware, which has external antenna connectors and delivers 200mW. Is it possible to use senao hardware on a Mac?

    If not, Can I use a Linksys WUSB54G ?

    Doesn't the MacBook's WiFi work for you? I know of no external WiFi hardware currently supported on MacBooks... There simply are no drivers for USB-WiFi-adapters, AFAIK.

    The integrated macbook wifi has
    1) not a very good range
    2) has no good support for passive mode...

    The integrated MacBook WiFi has the best range I've _ever_ seen on a notebook. At least mine does. Passive mode: Yeah. And that's what you need, I guess...
