Did you found any way to solve this issue? Im having the same problem :(

I have also some issues related to signal strength, Kismet is actually showing inconsistent values, here is a test using telnet to communicate with kismet_server (using capability BSSID bssid,signal_dbm):

*BSSID: 1C:7E:E5:XX:XX:XX -118
*BSSID: FC:94:E3:XX:XX:XX -98
*BSSID: FC:94:E3:XX:XX:XX -98
*BSSID: 1C:7E:E5:XX:XX:XX -128
*BSSID: 40:F2:01:XX:XX:XX 113
*BSSID: 1C:7E:E5:XX:XX:XX -123
*BSSID: 1C:7E:E5:XX:XX:XX -123

Im using an Atheros (AR9271) adapter, with ath9k drivers. My ncsources are setup in the following way:


I have this issue only in Kali2, it's works ok on previous versions of Kali and Debian 7.

Any clue about this?!
