First, two suggestions for the future:

1) use a reasonable subject. "Snort list - old postings - check dates 
before responding" has nothing to do with airsnort, airopeek, or anything 
else. A proper subject line will attract the attention of people who 
understand your problem. Many of us read this list in "subject skim" mode.

2) some users and list archives thread posts, so if you want to be seen, 
create a new post, don't reply to someone else's post.
         (note: editing the subject line doesn't count as a new post. 
Threading systems will see the "In-Reply-To:" message header.)

The AG660 uses a newer chipset from Atheros than the AG650 and is not 
driver-level compatible.

I know it took a little while for the Linux drivers to catch up and support 
this card, but the latest ones available outside the mainstream kernel do 
support it.

  I suspect wildpackets is in the same situation.
