> What is the maximum number of wireless interfaces kismet can use at one time?

There isn't anything hard-defined to limit it. I know people have fired up 14 plus interfaces without, as far as I know, any significant issues.

The only problem you'll hit is duplicate packets from overlapping interfaces. I'm working on a dupe filter which should handle some of that by basically just making a queue which compares packets for the previous N frames received.

If you find a problem with adding too many interfaces, make sure you're running the latest kismet (or the latest svn), and let me know. There shouldn't be any problem handling fairly large numbers of interfaces.
