> I have from what i can tell an unique situation. I have 3 wireless cards running in kismet under Slackware 12.2. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions about fine tuning these cards for best wireless coverage.

If you start them all at the same time, Kismet will make a fairly intelligent guess and split them up so they're not hopping on the same channels.

If you want spectrum coverage, hop all three.

If you want to try to capture more data while having a good idea of what's going on around you, set one to dwell at 2 seconds a channel or something, and hop the other two.

Play around and see what gets you the kind of coverage you want.
