Hi D,

Where do you get that I am using the hostap drivers? I showed that I compiled linux-wlanng drivers and showed that they are inserted (lsmod). If I've got something upside down I would like to know so I can fix it.

By the way, I used to configure kismet.conf with a source line thusly:

source=wlanng,wlan0,prism

but that was giving me problems today so I read the README and it indicated that for newer versions of linux-wlanng drivers, my current configuration (with wlanng_avs) was correct. Did I misread that?

Thanks.
