Subject:Problems getting Kismet to start with Intel 3945ABG
Date:01:55:16 11/01/2009

I am using Kismet 2008 05 R1. I tried installing using a package manager and using by compiling from source but I am getting the same error.

My kernel version is 2.6.24-21-generic.

I am using iwl3945 as my capture source type.

I have tried all the other similar ones: ipw3945, ipwlivetap. But they do not work.

The error I get when attempting "sudo kismet" is:

FATAL: channel get ioctl failed 95:Operation not supported

I have read that this means that I need to change my drivers. But I have up-to-date iwlwifi drivers (which contain the file iwl3945) in the kernel directory.

How can I get this to work?
Thank you.
