I'm using newcore, subversion repo version 3062. I'm running a kismet drone on an embedded card as the sole source to my kismet server. When I run kismet client and attempt to change the channel, the channel does change in the "Channels" text box; however, it appears as though my drone did not get the change request. The drones default channel list only includes 1 and 11. I change the list to 1,6,11 in kismet client, but I don't get more frequent packet updates on channel 6 devices. I do get this if I change the drone's conf file to 1,6,11 and restart the drone.

Just wondering if I'm conceptually approaching this the correct way. Is this a bug or my misunderstanding of how this works?
