> > Running your MIPS (wrt54g) statically-linked kismet_server binary on a Netgear WGT634U (on top of an OpenWrt buildroot-ng system), I have observed that during saves, incoming packets seem to disappear. This is particularly a problem because after 2000 or so networks, the save operation on this hardware takes on the order of 90 seconds.

It is during the periodic rewriting that I see the dropouts. If those events could generate sounds, it would help.

Too late! ;-)

I don't have a PC on my bicycle.
