> > Ok, awhile back I Installed the ipw2200 1.2.2 drivers, and appropriate firmware. I had kismet working. 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.

> Pshootr, I was wondering if you could tell me if what distribution you are using? and if the intel wireless card worked the first time? I have an intel 3945 but i do not geet anything listed in IP range ( and nothing under flags. Thanks.
I have ubuntu 7.10 gutsy Not to sure on kismet version, but I just got it a couple weeks ago. So what ever the newest release was then. Yes my ipw2200 works fine with kismet. Your results in the IP field and flags field will vary depending on the ap's you find.
