I am currently trying out the Wistron DNMA-92 wireless card. It supports 802.11n. I use it with the ath9k driver (for the 2.6.32-27 kernel).
I have no problem using it with Kismet in any of the 802.11 a, b or g modes. I encounter difficulties in the 802.11n mode: I get the mac address of the clients, but the signal strength is blocked at 4. I only get a reasonable signal strength (ie. -30db) when a management frame is transmitted by the client.

I can't figure out if this is a driver (ath9k) related problem, or I need to try out a different card (chipset problem?).
My question is: is there any success story with kismet and 802.11n? In the documentation I see that it works with some cards. What are these? Are any of them miniPci? What driver?
