Loopback is on and fine, and firewall rules let everything pass to and from loopback. /etc/hosts on the other hand includes only my comp and localhost like this:
127.0.0.1 localhost
192.168.0.3 hostname

192.168.0.3 is my wired nic's static address.

Why would kismet do any DNS lookups? It's a wireless sniffer for god's sake..
