Subject:Source 'wlan0': channel get ioctl failed 22:Invalid argument
Date:23:35:39 12/05/2011


I've compiled kismet-drone onto WP543 device - AR7130 CPU and AR9220 wireless chip, kernel and kismet_drone is throwing the following error, though no FATAL messages.

However is not identifying any networks.

I am hoping i'm relatively close to getting this working.. just wondering if someone can help with this final error?

I've tried to provide as much info as possible.

Many thanks.
