Subject:Not getting all packets
Date:15:50:58 28/03/2006

I'm using kismet on a Dell Inspiron 9300 with an ipw2915 and it seems to be working for the most part, but it's not capturing all packets. I did some tests where I had a friend send a bunch of AIM messages while I was capturing but the messages never showed up when I was analyzing the file using Ethereal. I even grepped the .dump file for the screennames and messages but nothing was found. There were some other AIM messages showing up, but not nearly as many as I knew there were being sent. Is there something I have to set so that it will capture every packet it sees and not just a certain network?
