Subject:ZD1211: FATAL: Failed to set channel 6 22:Invalid argument

> > I was happy to see that after some time my "cheapy chipset" ZD1211 is finally supported in Kismet. After installing it from the official Debian Etch repositories, I just run "kismet", after configuring it using hints from all over the net, but I got the following error:
> Wrong driver. Debian Etch drivers are the ZD1211 drivers included in kernel 2.6.18 and upwards, aka the ZD1211-RW (ReWrite) drivers. This driver isn't controlled the same way, wrt shifting into monitor mode and channelcontrol, as the original driver.

More to the point they pretty much don't work, at least as of 2.6.19. They go into monitor mode but simply won't change channel, unless you know of another method to control them that I don't.
