this is the message that i get when i run kismet

Source 0 (Intel Pro/Wireless): Enabling monitor mode for ipw3945 source interface eth1 channel 6...
FATAL: Failed to set monitor mode: Invalid argument. This usually means your drivers either do not support monitor mode, or use a different mechanism for getting to it. Make sure you have a version of your drivers that support monitor mode, and consult the troubleshooting section of the README

may someone help me, thx
