hi there,

i get hard problems when trying to start kismet with my minipci aironet wireless card. lspci tells me about the following card:

"01:02.0 Network controller: AIRONET Wireless Communications Cisco Aironet Wireless 802.11b"

i compiled the 1.6.18 kernel with the aironet pci modul and i think that it's the right one. i installed kismet und changed the config values to:


this is the right interface.
when i try to start kismet i get:

[root@x]# kismet
Server options: none
Client options: none

FATAL: pcap reported netlink type 1 (EN10MB) for eth1. This probably means you're not in RFMON mode or your drivers are reporting a bad value. Make sure you have the correct drivers and that entering monitor mode succeeded.

also setting the managed mode before starting doen't work
any solutions?

thank you all
