When I try to run kismet, I get the following error:

Source 0 (wireless): Opening wlanng_avs source interface wlan0...
FATAL: pcap reported netlink type 1 (EN10MB) for wlan0. This probably means you're not in RFMON mode or your drivers are reporting a bad value. Make sure you have the correct drivers and that entering monitor mode succeeded.

I also tried 'wlanng' as the source driver, but that didn't float at all.

In lsmod, I'm showing prism2_cs as the driver module.

wlan-ng version 0.2.3

kernel 2.6.13 (only one I could get wlanng to compile on)

kismet 2006-04-R1

Any ideas? I've read the documentation many times, actually had it working with a bcm43xx card but had no valid signal strength, so brought out this old card.
