I am wondering whether you ever got this working. I am trying set up an Ionics Stratus PlugComputer running Kismet. It has a Debian system and sounds like the same hardware/driver as you described. I am having issues and I wanted to know did you end up going the route of a USB wifi card or could you make it work with the libertas driver?
