Okay thanks for this info. But it seems the network-manager is "stronger" than kismet. Because if I start kismet the connection is closed but a few seconds later the manager connects again to it and kismet is not working so I have to shut it down manually.

>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.

No it was enabled by default but the doc I read told to uncomment things in the interfaces-files. Seemed like I understood it wrong and I should just uncomment lines in regard to my network interface (eht1). But because I hadn't such an entry I uncommented the loopback not knowing what it's good for.

Thanks for your help with this!
