Problem solved!!! Kismet drone is now starting a mac80211 VAP interface!!!

INFO: Source 'wlan0' attempting to create mac80211 VAP 'wlan0mon'
INFO: Started source 'wlan0'

It was a mac80211 issue, well more a end-user of mac80211 issue!
I am intending to do a detailed HOW TO regarding setting up Kismet on different wireless routers. There is not much documentation around, and it is mostly for WRT54G and Fon style devices. Will post a link here when I get the time to collate my notes and write the HOW TO.
