> yeah thank you :) You have been right! I removed the comment signs in my interfaces-file and I had to close my network connection to my wlan and now it works. But is this correct? So do I need to switch off my connection to use kismet?

You cannot be online and running kismet on the same wireless card, but kismet will change the mode automatically. Loopback is needed for any TCP services running locally, so it should always be there. For some reason a few distros don't enable it and I don't know why.
