Hello !
I have a Problem with Kismet.
(BT5, Kismet Newcore 2011-03-R2)

Kismet works well on my Laptop. It recognises the right WLAN.

Unfortunately after a few seconds it receives scrap and sorts that stuff in Autogroup Data, Hidden SSID, Autogroup Athoc and Autogroup Probe.

The Mac-Adresses are not on Air, nor they will be :)
I'm the only one around.

Maybe Kismet guesses the Mac-Adresses :)
Its impossible to sort the good Mac-adresses from the bad ones.

I think, that error comes with the dwell-time on the channel.
A WLAN on Channel 6 occurs on the corresponding channels 3-9, maybe Kismet gets some fragments on channel 3 which it cannot decode properly.

Sometimes the Mac-Adresses are nearly the same as the wanted Mac, other Macs are complete different.

I haven't found any solution yet. Is there a work-around ?
An old version of Kismet (old Core) hasn't got this behavior.

Thank you.
