Subject:No more wireless since kismet
Date:09:34:16 29/08/2011


Since I ran kismet, my wireless network doesn't detect any networks anymore.
I have both Ubuntu 10 and Windows 7 installed on my laptop. It doesn't work on both operating systems.

If anyone could help me or lead me in the right direction it would be appreciated.

When I exited kismet my network card stayed in monitoring mode. So i put it in Managed with the commands:

sudo ifconfig wlan0 down
sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode managed
sudo ifconfig wlan0 up

My card is now in monitoring mode but still my card doesn't detect any networks.

If it might help, some info about my card:
