First, thanks for all the great work that's been done with Kismet -- it's been a a great educational tool and, at times, a life-saver.

I've searched the forum and elsewhere on the internet, and I know TFM says "WINDOWS DRIVERS DO NOT INCLUDE SUPPORT FOR WIFI MONITORING WHICH KISMET REQUIRES" -- but with the advent of NDIS6 (since Windows Vista) and greater, is this still the case? If so, what is still missing, and what would it take to allow Kismet to use drivers for NDIS6-compliant NICs on newer versions of Windows to enable rfmon mode?

Sorry if the question is dumb or if I misunderstand something essential, but thanks for bearing with me.
