How ever I still get the same message as before when I run kismet, it opens fine then gives me the same message. When I installed network tools I got a message saying not to forget to add (some path) to my ldconfig. But I have not done that yet. Could this be why?

Ah, I just noticed this message in the status portion

Connected to Kismet server version 2007.01.R1 build 20050815211952 on localhost:2501 │
│ localhost:2501 TCP error: socket returned EOF, server has closed the connection.

What can I do to resolve this message? I have a feeling it is an issue with the configuration of my ipw2200 card. I just don't know what.
