Read the readme.

You cannot capture packets natively in windows, no matter what the card. ipw2200 is a linux source. Windows drivers lack the ability to go into monitor mode.

If you're trying to run the drone on a linux box, then you didn't build pcap support or something, look at the output of configure.
