Subject:Issues with Kismet & bcm43xx switching to Channel 14
Date:21:04:51 26/07/2006

I am trying to get Kismet working on FC5 with the bcm43xx driver. Both Server and Client on the same machine.

It seems to work for a short period, anything from 2 seconds to a minute and then just stops recognising packets. When it gets into this state, it indicates that it has selected Channel 14. Why?

I have tried setting channelhop=false and although this disables hopping (as expected) after a short period is once again says Channel 14 in the info section and stops receiving. Channel 14 is not even in my channel list

Is this a Kismet bug?
Is this somehow caused by the bcm43xx driver?
Am I doing something stupid?

I have tried this with both stable and stable-devel and get the same result.

Please advise

Nigel
