Hi,
I'm trying to run kismet on a Debian laptop using the 2.6.18 and hostap 0.4.4 driver. The pcmcia wireless card is Senao 2511 CD EXT2 PLUS.
When I started kismet, usually it went fine during the first 3 minutes. Then it started showing the following in the syslog:

Jan 24 11:03:45 t60 kernel: eth3: Disabling monitor mode
Jan 24 11:03:45 t60 kernel: prism2: eth3: operating mode changed 6 -> 2
Jan 24 11:03:45 t60 kernel: wifi1: LinkStatus=2 (Disconnected)
Jan 24 11:03:45 t60 kernel: wifi1: LinkStatus: BSSID=44:44:44:44:44:44
Jan 24 11:03:45 t60 kernel: wifi1: LinkStatus=2 (Disconnected)
Jan 24 11:03:45 t60 kernel: wifi1: LinkStatus: BSSID=44:44:44:44:44:44
repeating the previous two lines

It seemed that the wireless card exited the monitor mode.

I tried to upgrade to the newest kismet version but without success.
Could it be a driver issue or there is some kismet configuration I missed?

my kismet.conf has the following line:

source=hostap,eth3,hostap

Thanks
