Subject:Fatal error when starting Kismet at terminal.
Date:13:45:54 13/11/2010

I have 2 Thinkpads which are identical except for WiFi cards. When I type kismet at the terminal of one it runs fine, but I get the following message for the other one:

"FATAL: pcap reported netlink type 1 (EN10MB) for eth3. This probably means you're not in RFMON mode or your drivers are reporting a bad value. Make sure you have the correct drivers and that entering monitor mode succeeded.

Also, when I close the terminal after the above no-go I have lost my internet connection and have to re-boot to get it back.

Note: the card that gives the error is an Aironet Cisco.

Any ideas?
