Subject:Kismet witrh AirPcap Ex, 802.11A channels not seen
Date:11:08:57 21/02/2009

> I'm using a AirPcap Ex with Kismet and the 802.11B channels (1-11) are showing up fine. The 802.11A channels(36-64)are not showing up. I confirmed that my kismet.conf has the following entry:
> defaultchannels=IEEE80211a:36,40,44,48,52,56,60,64
> The AirPcap control Panel is configured for Capture Type: 802.11 + Radio
> any suggestions will be appreciated.
> Thanks,

You have to configure the source to use the 802.11a channels. By default the airpcap sources use the 11bg channels only. Editing the 11a channels w/out pointing the source at them won't change anything.

Add a sourcechannels line or just edit the default 11g channels.

I don't know if the Ex can sniff 11a or not, either.
