    Default Process of setting up kismet

    In Backtrack 3 I've tried setting up, in the kismet config file,
    Code:
    source=ath5k_ag, ath0, atheros
    and when I ran kismet I got "FATAL: GetIFFlags: interface ath0: No such device" Then I notice this:

    Code:
    iwlist ath0 scan
    ath0 No scan results
    The things two feet from the access point. How can I get this working? The only thing I'm thinking is the wi-fi button isn't set up right? How would I do that if thats the case? It's just a regular push button like a key on an Acer Aspire 5520-5912. ............help? thanks

    Try leaving out the spaces.

    source=ath5k_ag,ath0,atheros

    You need this line as well.

    enablesources=atheros

    Make sure you you edit the correct kismet.conf file located at:

    /usr/local/etc/kismet.conf
    [FONT=Courier New][SIZE=2][FONT=Courier New]hehe...

    ifconfig ath0 up makes your interface up
    ifconfig ath0 down makes your interface down

    Aren't you using madwifi drivers? Than you have to use "madwifi_ag".

    Do I HAVE to use madwifi drivers? I tried to see if it would work with the drivers that are automatically loaded when BT3 boots up.
    Code:
    bt ~ # ifconfig ath0 up
    bt ~ # iwconfig
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    eth0      no wireless extensions.
    
    wifi0     no wireless extensions.
    
    ath0      IEEE 802.11g  ESSID:""  Nickname:""
              Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.457 GHz  Access Point: Not-Associated
              Bit Rate:0 kb/s   Tx-Power:16 dBm   Sensitivity=1/1
              Retry:off   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
              Encryption key:off
              Power Management:off
              Link Quality=0/70  Signal level=-256 dBm  Noise level=-256 dBm
              Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
              Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0
    
    bt ~ # iwlist ath0 scan
    ath0      No scan results
    So then I tried
    Code:
    bt Desktop # tar xvzf mad*

    OK I thought it might have had something to do with the fact I have to use noapic and acpi=off in text mode to boot up then I can startx but if I don't use them it doesnt boot up at all. Anyways heres some more output. It's the last part of dmesg. If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated!

    Does this not have a solution? If anyone has a comment please post. If you need more info let me know. Heres some more info I found while playing around that i found interesting that might help
    Code:
    bt ~ # airdriver-ng detect
    
    Found "Madwifi[-ng]" device: (ath_pci)
    05:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications, Inc. AR5006EG 802.11 b/g Wireless PCI Express Adapter (rev 01)
    
    
    PCI devices (generic detection):
    05:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications, Inc. AR5006EG 802.11 b/g Wireless PCI Express Adapter (rev 01)
    Does this mean something might be conflicting? Please help me figure this out.
