Yet, I can't seem to get my tendNet to work with kismet. And I could of swore I ran it once, but lost that configure info when my computer mysteriously rebooted(No mystery the cat likes to play with the surge protecter)

if you're using a modern kismet (one from the download page here, not what your distribution thinks is modern) then you don't need the driver anymore in the config, just define:

ncsource=wlan0

(or wlan1, or whatever your card is) and kismet will figure it out from there.

Enjoy!
