I have a Netgear WG511T PCMCIA card with Atheros chipset, and a Apple PowerBook G4 laptop with Yellow Dog 4.0 Linux and kernel 2.6.8. I have compiled MadWifi drivers and the card works fine.

I currently use kismet 2006-04-R1, and all parameters on kismet.conf are correct, but when I run kismet I do not capture traffic at all.

I have noticed that "kis" interface (the one created by kismet) says that "Signal level: -95 dBm", "Noise level: -95 dBm" and "Link quality: 0/94". On the other hand, in normal use of the card I can get these levels: "Signal level: -30 dBm", "Noise level: -95 dBm" and "Link quality: 65/94".

Of course, I destroy all non-monitor mode VAPs prior to run kismet.
