Date:15:11:06 24/03/2007


I have a D-Link Wireless Air Plus Xtreme G DWL-G520 108Mbps with atheros chipset. I download and installed madiwifi drivers (ath_pci).

So i installed kismet, and edited kismet.conf source like this:

then when I try to start kismet i get this:

Starting server...
Waiting for server to start before starting UI...
Will drop privs to minuzzo (500) gid 500
No specific sources given to be enabled, all will be enabled.
Enabling channel hopping.
Enabling channel splitting.

WARNING: Could not get mode of vap ath0::wifi0, skipping

WARNING: ath0 appears to not accept the Madwifi-NG controls. Will attempt to configure it as a standard Madwifi-old interface. If you are using madwifi-ng, be sure to set the source interface to the wifiX control interface, NOT athX
FATAL: 'get_mode' does not return integer parameters.

anyone can give me a hand? im noob with kismet. thx
