> Probably a stupid question but I can't figure out what's wrong for the life of me. Compiling the new version of kismet. Using latest version of ubuntu. Laptop has an atheros wireless car with madwifi driver. Kismet starts up but no networks are detected. I know there are some around as I can verify with a windows pc. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Check all the warnings in the readme about conditions where the madwifi driver breaks (not loading it with special parameters before running kismet is a common one). The driver really isn't very happy about monitor mode a lot of the time, I strongly recommend changing to ath5k.
