> Hello, bare with me as I am fairly new to the linux operating system. I am using the live CD of Knoppix Auditor and have a Netgear WG311v2 wireless card.
> When starting Kismet, no access points are listed. Looking at iwconfig/ifconfig things seem to be in order on wlan0. Using 'iwlist wlan0 scan', no results are returned. Many APs are found using the same live CD on my laptop, so they are present.
> It seems as though something simple is on a wrong setting for my wireless card, but I don't have the knowledge/experience to troubleshoot the problem. It would be greatly appreciated if someone could point me in the right direction.

Which chipset does that card use ? Have you configured your kismet.conf file with the right capturesource ?

Documentation - Kismet readme - section 12.
