> > HELLO,

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.
