Tonight I reinstalled the 1.2.2 drivers after patching them with the ipw220 1.2.2-injection.patch. And now when start kismet I get this message below. Could this be because the source ID has changed.

I repatched the drivers with another patch, and patched the ieee80211. Now Kismet can induce monitor modeagain :), but now I can't figure out how to set monitor mode manually. I tried "iwconfig eth1 mode monitor", that dosn't do it.... Any ideas?
