Sorry I should have specified the wrt54 packages that enable you to run the drone on the wrt54 platform.

I was never referring to the version of kismet server or client simply the drone. However, I know that the "old core" drone will not work with the "new core" server so what I've been looking for is a wrt54 package that has the compatible drone for kismet "new core" server.

I've been running my drones without any issues for a couple of weeks now, but if they do become unstable I'll probably search for an alternative or abandon the project and sell the units. If you have any suggestions for cheap alternatives I'm all ears.

Thanks for the info about the openwrt code. I've been using ddwrt but much of it seems to have become convoluted and outdated.

So if I'm using drones then I won't see any alerts at the server/client?
