What about using the latest version 2006-08-R1 of kismet?
guessing source line should look like source=ipw2200:eth0:MyCard

Any chance of copying and pasting the output when starting kismet.

not sure about arptype 803 but packettype 803 is wireless (I think).

> running debian 3.1 i installed kismet using apt-get.
> my laptop uses the intel ipw2200 and at the time i had the 1.1.0 d
river and firmware 2.4 installed.
> every time i tried to run kismet i got the error that ipw2200 was not a valid source type.
> i tried upgrading to driver 1.1.1 for the ipw2200 and firmware 3.0, patched the driver and edited the makefile to make sure tap was on.
> i still had the same problem.
> i then saw a post saying that kismet-2005-06-R1 now worked flawlessly with kismet with the newest ipw driver and firmware.
> i downloaded kismet-2005-06-R1 and installed with no problems, now i get the error "FATAL: arptype 803 not supported by libpcap - falling back to cooked socket"
