I have this wireless card: http://www.edimax.com/en/produce_detail.php?pd_id=8&pl1_id=1&pl2_id=44 and I'm not sure if it supports packet injection. How can I find this out?

Running OSX Leopard

As a first step you need to know what OS you are running. – Benjamin Bannier Feb 8 '10 at 3:42

According to the article below, the Edimax EW-7318USG does support packet injection:

Injection Test Results: WUSB54Gv4, WT111v2, Edimax EW-7318USG, and Intel IPW2200

I may be completely wrong, but I was under the impression that to support injection your card needed a chipset with cracked or open source firmware.

Have a look at this list regarding kismac packet injection. It will hopefully tell you what chipset your card is using, and whether or not it will be suitable for injection.
