    Default Kismet RT73 | linksys WUSB54GC

    Another wireless/kismet thread. I am sorry

    I got myself a linksys WUSB54GC but upon putting it into the usb slot, the light on it doesn't go on. I have a wireless device on my motherboard by defualt but that shouldnt be a problem. Dmesg regonizes it being added tho:
    Code:
    usb 1-6: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 11
    usb 1-6: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
    phy4: Selected rate control algorithm 'minstrel'
    Registered led device: rt73usb-phy4::radio
    Registered led device: rt73usb-phy4::assoc
    Registered led device: rt73usb-phy4::quality
    Iwconfig adds an entry called "wlan1":
    Code:
    wlan1     IEEE 802.11bg  Mode:Managed  Access Point: Not-Associated
              Tx-Power=0 dBm
              Retry  long limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
              Power Management:on
    Installed the rt73 driver because it dident work 'right out of the box', like another website suggested with:
    Code:
    wget http://homepages.tu-darmstadt.de/~p_larbig/wlan/rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.3.tar.bz2
    tar -xjf rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.3.tar.bz2
    cd rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.3/Module
    make
    sudo make install
    sudo modprobe rt73
    airmon-ng start wlan1 says this:
    Code:
    Found 3 processes that could cause trouble.
    If airodump-ng, aireplay-ng or airtun-ng stops working after
    a short period of time, you may want to kill (some of) them!

                                    (monitor mode enabled on mon0)
    As you can see, lots of wlan0mon got added for whatever reason. When starting kismet_server:

    Code:
    pwn@bt:~$ sudo kismet_server
    [sudo] password for pwn:
    ERROR: Kismet was started as root, NOT launching external control binary.
