Hi all, please help me solve problem.
I bought USB WI-fi card ASUS-N13, and want to try kismet.
After install the programm, make lshw command and get foolowing:
описание: Беспроводной интерфейс
физический ID: 3
bus info: usb@2:1.2
логическое имя: wlan0
серийный №: 14:da:e9:b0:9f:50
возможности: ethernet physical wireless
кофигурация: broadcast=yes driver=rt2800usb driverversion=3.2.0-20-generic firmware=0.29 ip= multicast=yes wireless=IEEE 802.11bgn

Google say that chipset of my card is Ralink RT2870.
Then I'm change config kismet, set "source" string as follow
But when i start kismet i get following error
fobos@Alpha:~$ sudo kismet
Launching kismet_server: //usr/bin/kismet_server
Suid priv-dropping disabled. This may not be secure.
No specific sources given to be enabled, all will be enabled.
Non-RFMon VAPs will be destroyed on multi-vap interfaces (ie, madwifi-ng)
Enabling channel hopping.
Enabling channel splitting.
FATAL: Unknown capture source type 'rt2800usb' in source 'rt2800usb,wlan0,Ralink'
How solve that? I'm junior in linux.
