On a notebook (Debian squeeze with kernel 2.6.32) I used to run Kismet old with an atheros abg card and the Madwifi driver without any issues.

Since the Madwifi driver interferes with the hostap driver I switched to ath5k.

Unfortunately there was no information about associated clients any more so I upgraded to Kismet Newcore. This didn't fix the problem - no clients nor data or crypt packets are detected.

Is this an issue related to the version of ath5k in this kernel?

One more concern: I still miss the capability of Kismet (old) to store the SSIDs of decloaked networks.
Is there still hope?
