Changing this line help for a start in kismet.conf
# Client/server listen config
#listen=tcp://127.0.0.1:2501
listen=tcp://0.0.0.0:2501
when starting kismet_server I get the following that points to problems that need attention:
root@bt:/usr/etc# airmon-ng


Interface Chipset Driver

wlan0 Atheros ath5k - [phy0]

root@bt:/usr/etc# airmon-ng start wlan0


Interface Chipset Driver

wlan0 Atheros ath5k - [phy0]
(monitor mode enabled on mon0)

root@bt:/usr/etc# kismet_server
