Subject:Ubuntu Gutsy, Kismet, DLink DWL-G650 -> Kismet not running
Date:03:51:12 03/11/2007

Hi there,

My DLink DWL-G650 (PCMCIA,Atheros Chipset) is running fine with Gutsy and WPA.
Nevertheless, starting sudo kismet (kismet from the gutsy repository;
from my kismet conf: source=madwifi_ag,wifi0,DWL-G650)
results in::

Source 0 (DWL-G650): Enabling monitor mode for madwifi_ag source interface wifi0 channel 6...
WARNING: Found a non-master non-monitor VAP wifi0::kis1. Madwifi-ng has historically had problems with normal-mode VAPs combined with monitor-mode VAPs. You may need to remove them.
NOTICE: Created Madwifi-NG RFMON VAP kis2
WARNING: wifi0 appears to be using Madwifi-NG. Some versions of the Madwifi-NG drivers have problems in monitor mode, especially if non-monitor VAPs are active. If you experience problems, be sure to try the latest versions of Madwifi-NG and remove other VAPs

and aborting kismet.
What does the error message mean - sorry, I'm a Linux newbie -
and what can I do?
