Same problem here. I just bought a belkin wireless G usb network adapter with a rt2571wf in. I use the latest stable rt2570-driver from codemonkeys and iwconfig reports rausb0.

when I start kismet the server seemes to hang itself and all network interfaces. I have tried the default host:port and others to, no sucess whatsoever. also tried the cvs rt2570-driver, no difference. No kernel messages tha indicates anythnig wrong.

kernel message on detection:
usbcore: registered new driver rt2570
hub 1-0:1.0: over-current change on port 1
usb 1-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 2
usb 1-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
idVendor = 0x50d, idProduct = 0x705a

iwconfig info on rausb0:

Encryption key:off
Link Quality=0/100 Signal level:-120 dBm Noise level:-256 dBm
