Subject:Signal strength with Prism chipset
Date:11:36:13 16/07/2009

I'm not using a Broadcom-based card, I am using the XI-325H from Zcomax. Under the latest development revision of newcore, if I try to let it autodetect it says 'b43' and then crashes. If I manually configure the source to use the hostap driver (which should be correct since I'm using a card with a Prism 2.5 chipset), everything does work as expected, but 'No signal data is available'. Signal data is reported with other tools such as WireShark, but Kismet for some reason isnt reading and displaying that data.

> > I also wanted to add that this hardware worked just fine with the 'old' kismet using the b43 drivers. Using the latest development source, when I try to autodetect the interface it comes back with 'b43' and then crashes. Is there any way to have the signal strength readings show up in newcore, regardless of how inaccurate they may be?
