> Hello to all, I am a newbie user of network applications.
> I have installed Kismet on a Dell Inspiron 6400 notebook (running on Windows). The notebook is supplied with Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini Card.
> When I run Kismet, I get the msg saying; "The kismet server couldn't start, make sure that at least one AirPcap adapter is present in the machine". I ran Kismet Config Console to set my wireless card as the default adapter, however it is not listed under "specify adapter" menu. What should be the cause? Thanks.

You did read the documentation, right ?
Then please tell me which part of this sentence in Section 11, under Win32, you didn't understand :
Win32 local packet capture is possible ONLY with the CACE Airpcap device.
