Subject:HELP !!!KISMET STOP RECORDING DATA AFTER 5-10 MINUTE.

> HELLO,
> problem I have is that Kismet after 5 minutes of running will stop recording data. The elapsed time is moving, the Madwif ch is hopping around but the packets stop , signalbar zero no moving and I can no longer see any new data. When this happens it's like the wifi card is turned off. If I shutdown kismet and start up airodump it will no longer see anything either. So to fix this problem I turn the card off (ifconfig ath1 down) and then back on (ifconfig ath1 up) and then everything is working just find again... till I run kismet for 5 minutes.

Sounds like the drivers are broken.

Try a different version of madwifi-ng, or try a different card, or try madwifi-old.

Nothing Kismet can do when the drivers lock up and stop reporting packets.
