Subject:Wireless goes down after running kismet

I read a lot of the threads here all the way back to '07 just incase my question has been asked before, I did see a few similar issues but the ones that were dead on were never answered, so.. tried to fix the problem myself with no luck.

and here I am.

Here's the issue and I know a lot of you have probably heard and may have dealt with something similar.

Whenever I run kismet and my wireless card starts searching for networks in range it does cause the current connection established to go down, I'm sure this is normal behavior though. What is an issue, is when I'm through with running kismet I can never get the wireless device out of its debug mode. Even turning on/off the adapter does not fix the problem and I will be forced to reboot.

I've tried switching drivers as I do have one other in my list but its only a proprietary driver and doesn't even allow debug mode to be enabled.

I'd greatly appreciate any feedback even if it is 'RTFM' and it was just something I missed.
