Why do you think it is a Prism card, when your operating system clearly tells you differently ?

When you don't read the documentation, and put a malformed capture source line in your kismet.conf file, then it is logical Kismet doesn't work...
Read section 12 of the documentation, then check that the correct driver is loaded, and put the correct capture source statement in the kismet.conf file.
