Subject:Kismet does not report Noise Levels
Date:10:25:19 30/03/2011

Hi,
I´m using Kismet with a PCMCIA AR5001X+ chipset card running Ath5k driver. Kismet is working very well but the noise apear as 0 dbm for all the detected networks. The signal levels are reported but the noise no. I try to install the madwifi driver but it seems that cannot work in monitor mode with this card.

Can anyone know what can be the problem?

Thanks in advanced,

Carlos.
