Understood about the signal levels outside of monitor mode.

I had this working on a previous installation of Linux on this same equipment a few months ago with an earlier kismet-devel and earlier ipw2200/associated versions. I'll regress my settings a bit and see if I can identify a breakpoint.

Thanks for the rapid response.
