Ye, ye I understand that, but as I wrote before: Last year when I used old version of Kismet (2007), the log was clear and readable... There were a lot of Network types and with different speed limit (22,36,18 etc). Now, when I have Kismet (2010) there are only 11 and 54 and maybe 0,05% of 36 and 18.

So again, why old Kismet showed me all spectrum of max rate, but the new version show me 98% of networks as 54.0? Example:

Network 453:

BTW: How to close this "Clients" part in logs? I prefer to see only "Networks"?




I know, I have too many questions, but believe me - I just want to understand few things. I'm interesting in network since last year and I want to learn more. Kismet is good opportunity to do that.

Thank you.
