> > I have kismet up and running on my Fedora 12 system. I see traffic, can sort by MAC and packets / data counts are running as expected. What is odd is that I never see the IP address of a client (Best-Guess IP) or of the network. I am testing on my home network and see that my IP TV is streaming lots of data but I can't see its IP address. Any thoughts on why I seem to have 'everything' working but this? Thanks! Phil

Ah - yes it is running WPA. I didn't realize the IP address was in the encoded part. Thanks!
