> > 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?

of these 3 cases, it is probably the last, but which exactly drivers r u talking about ? i run kismet (and backtrack) at a laptop with NO hard this the problem then ? do i need a hard drive with the right drivers istalled?
