Okey so I used that command
iw wlan0 interface add wlan0mon type monitor
sucessfully to make myself a wlan0mon device and configured kismet to use it. It doesn't throw any more error messages, but with the kismet_drone + kismet_server on my pc I still only get the channel statistics and no network information.

When I run the kismet_server directly on the router I get the network information. Wheres the difference, why does the drone+server not work the same way?

On my netbook I'm using "kismet-2011.03.2a.i386.deb" downloaded from here.
