Subject:I get only Beacon-Packets with Kismet and DWL-122 :(
Date:03:01:24 27/01/2007

Hi there,

kismet does generally work and my D-Link DWL-122 USB WLAN Adapter (Prism2 -> wlanng-driver) does also as I can connect to the internet (I am in an WEP encrypted WLAN at the moment) and kismet shows me all the APs in the neighbourhood. The only problem is that I got around 10 packets/sec and nearly all of them are beacon-packets. I do not get ANY TCP or UDP packets.

dmesg says the following (after starting kismet):

The relevant part of the kismet.conf:

Where could be the error? I alredy googled around and red the manuel but did not find any solution. Do I have to activate the possibility to scan somewhere? (I don't think so as broadcast stuff can be received like beacons).

Thanks in advance :)
