Subject:Enabling monitor mode for ipw2100 -> FATAL: Failed to set channel 6 95:Operation not supported
Date:11:40:44 09/03/2007

im completely stuck with this:

Source 0 (ipw): Enabling monitor mode for ipw2100 source interface eth1 channel 6...
FATAL: Failed to set channel 6 95:Operation not supported

im using the last firmware available from ipw2100.sf.net:
ipw2100.1.2.2

if i do a iwconfig eth1 mode monitor i get no error messages, this is what i have according to dmesg:

ieee80211: 802.11 data/management/control stack, 1.2.16
ieee80211: Copyright (C) 2004-2005 Intel Corporation <jketreno@linux.intel.com>
ipw2100: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2100 Network Driver, 1.2.2

im trying with both kismet-devel from svn and kismet 2007 from the gentoo's ebuild, no avail.

the card used to work, i just switched to kernel 2.6.20 and that broke the armony.

how can i fix this?
