Subject:Kismet cannot trace connected clients

> hello , i m a noob with both kismet (and backtrack 3 which i am using). i do an <<iwconfig>> in a konsole and the name of my interface(?) is wlan0. next to it says <<mode:monitor>> which i believe is what we want it to be. i close the konsole , open kismet and it traces the wireless networks around and pretty much everything seems to be working right except that it can never trace any connected clients (by pressing shift+c) to the APs it has traced. any ideas?

It hasn't seen any, either because there aren't any, or they aren't transmitting while kismet is on that channel, or your drivers are broken and don't report data frames (also plausible).
