> It doesn't seem anyone has dropped by and said anything about this yet, but I have had an iPhone for over 2 years and as I was keeping my repository updated I noticed that promiscuous mode is not supported by a package called network-cmds

I assume you mean "now" supported.

Unfortunately, what Kismet needs isn't really promisc mode, it's monitor mode, which requires support from the firmware and the OS drivers, which isn't present.

Promisc mode only really means anything for ethernet. Monitor mode is the equivalent for wireless.
