    Nope, Atheros AR2315A does not support monitor mode and injection.

    It also is not a USB device, only LAN which means that it cannot be used in VM.

    A usb to lan adaptor would work but you wouldn't get injection just access to internet, you could see if it can be put into monitor mode with telnet but I've only known a few cisco ones to support it without changing firmware to ddwrt or openwrt ect.

    No
    No, there is no Linux driver available for tinycore, sure one could be made but it is probably outside your skill set and take a long time to do.

    Sorry mr. Penguin
    But these i found run fine under linux http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ethernet-...ther_Computing_Networking&hash=item589fa44a6e i never use vm but don't see why they won't?

    As for reaver,kismet,aircrack ect,bully which run's fine on openwrt, the only problem with TL-WA5210G is storage the routers i have with openwrt i have either usb soldered into them if possible or support usb for storage or for external wifi cards.

    But as you said for the TL-WA5210G would probably need to be flashed with jtag "probably outside your skill set" so not the easiest to learn about openwrt, i'd just buy a TL-WR703N for £15-20 the most hackable if your interested in openwrt.
