Hi there! Thanks for the quick answer!

I installed and ran the kismet_server on that router and strangly enough the kismet_server does see some networks unlike the drone. however, the "pcap radiotap converter got corrupted Radiotap header length" message also does get printed here at least once a second. How could this difference be explained? I mean the connection between the drone and my local client does work definitly, since I can see the same errors on the server-console of my client running on my netbook.
