Does anyone have kismet working with fedora 2.6.anything. The drivers are built into fedora because I am able to connect to my ap and get out to the internet. When I try and use kismet it doesn't work. My source command in kismet.conf is:
source=cisco,eth1,kismet. I have noticed that when I give the echo mode r command the config file for the card does change to rmon. If at this point I try and start kismet, then look at the card config file again it has been changed from rmon to any and I get a message stating the I may not have the card in rmon. Do I need to use wifi0? What commands do I need to use? I have tried:

Not the exact command, because I am not at the box at this time but the commands are working, kismet just does not want to work.

echo mode r path for the config file of the 350 card
echo mode y path for the config file of the 350 card
ifconfig wifi0 up
Then I receive an error stating that the card may not be in rmon.

If the Cisco card won't work with Fedora can someone tell me what Orinco card will. I will go to ebay and pick it up. I have had the working with 2.4.x code but would like to get it working with the newer kernel.
Thank You.
