Subject:Kismet-newcore on Asus Eee PC 900HA
Date:22:49:12 08/04/2009

I have an Asus Eee PC 900HA and I'm attempting to run kismet newcore on it. I can get the server running, but it gives a warning that no source was determined in my configuration file. even though it has.

Some information:

kismet.conf ncsource line


when trying to add :type=ath5k to the ncsource line, it gives back an invalid device error.

I was just curious if my wireless card isn't supported by kismet, or if it is a pebak error.
