I start the drone and server on the wrt54g and then start the client on my ubuntu machine. I'm getting information in both the Status and Info panels but nothing happens in the Network List panel. If I look at the logfiles, I see that various things are being found as well. So, it seems like things are working but not everything is being sent to the ui properly. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry for my ignornance but I'm new to kismet. For my client, I simply downloaded the latest stable version (Kismet 2006-04-R1) and compiled it for OS X. I also tried a precompiled binary of version 2005-08-R1 for a client on ubuntu. For the WRT54g, I used some precompiled binaries. Those are kismet-server_2004.10.r1_mipsel and kismet_drone_2004.10.r1_mipsel.

I don't think I'm running Newcore in any of the 3 binaries. As best as I can tell, the Newcore development started in 2005 and my binaries for the WRT54g are from 2004. Since I compiled the OS X binary myself, I tried looking through the source for some evidence of Newcore. Line 2121 of says:

// Newcore might do this better, but this isn't newcore.

So, I don't think the OS X binary is Newcore either.

Am I doing something else wrong? Is there a different version I should try?

Thanks for all your help, it's truly appreciated.
