Linux uses a single DLT for all interfaces, while BSD (and by extension, OSX) can report multiple DLTs on one interface, so if you don't set your DLT explicitly to 802.11, you'll only get EN10MB. Again, look at packetsource_darwin and packetsource_pcap

Is it possible to use the drone <-> server <-> client configuration to create an application that uses the Kismet protocol to achieve mostly the same objective? (accessing the raw packets going on the wireless channel, in monitor mode?
