I'm trying to get kismet working on with madwifi-ng using a card that worked fine in a different laptop.

I have the latest madwifi-ng snapshot, compiled without any errors, and the latest kismet.

I've taken down my default ath0 and created a new ath1 in monitor mode. When I try to start the server using wifi0 as the source I get:

Source 0 (me): Enabling monitor mode for madwifi_g source interface wifi0 channel 6...
FATAL: channel get ioctl failed 22:Invalid argument

If I try ath1 (monitor mode) I get:

Source 0 (me): Enabling monitor mode for madwifi_g source interface ath1 channel 6...
FATAL: Failed to retrieve list of private ioctls 7:Argument list too long

When trying ath1 I've tried with it up and down. I know the setup used to work in my old laptop but I can't get it working with this one and the same card.

Is this just madwifi-ng not being fully supported or is there something else I could look at?

Can anyone help?
