Subject:Kismet not spotting clients
Date:08:22:54 13/04/2013

I'm running Kismet 2013-03-R0 on a Raspberry Pi, and it doesn't seem to be very successful at detecting wireless clients.

As a test, I booted up my laptop, had it connect to my wireless AP, and ran a flood ping (a minimum of 100 packets per second) for 15 minutes (transmitting a quarter-million packets in the process). My laptop didn't show up as a client. I tried the same thing with an open AP that a neighbor runs, with the same result.

Clients do show up occasionally for wireless APs, but not very often. Any idea what's going on?
