> > I've noticed that when running kismet, I can view RSSI information in a wireshark session (capturing on the same interface), but when I close my kismet session and open the resulting .dump file, there is no Radiotap info. Other than running wireshark at the same time and saving that file separately, is there a way I can retain the Radiotap info in the kismet .dump file?

Dragorn, thanks for the quick response. I've been putting off trying newcore until its "official", guess I'll bite the bullet and give it a shot. Hopefully it will work on BT4.

Thanks again...
