Subject:Can't capture anything with Netgear WG511T
Date:06:29:42 29/07/2006


I'm no expert, but I do know that I have a NetGear WG511T and my source line is different than yours. Figured I'd let you know what is working for me.
Sorry I can't be much more help


> Hello,
> I used to use Kismet with a Cisco Aironet PCM350 and worked fine. Recently I have purchased a Netgeat WG511T with Atheros chipset. I have downloaded latest madwifi-ng drivers (both stable and developer versions) and compiled.
> I can use Netgear card with my PowerPC Powerbook with YelloDog with kernel 2.6.8, and I can associate with my AP and use it, but when I try to use Kismet 2006-04-R1 version I am able to run Kismet, but I can not capture any packet. When I run kismet both LEDs on Netgear card blink at 1 Hz (more or less), when I stop kismet then just one of them remain on. I have tried destroy ath0 managed mode before running kismet, and nothing else happens.
