    Default airodump/kismet problem

    well im using an airlink awlc4130 pcmcia card supported by bt3. well when i start off doing airmon-ng stop ath0 / airmon-ng start wifi0

    then i go to airodump ath0
    i just get a blank terminal screen.

    sometimes airodump works sometimes it doesnt.

    then when i run kismet, kismet just locks up on the main kismet screen. anyone ever see this happen before?

    As far as I'm concerned, I believe that atheros based card have special usage, maybe you should try with wifi0 instead of ath0

    use this
    airmon-ng start wifi0
    it will create one monitor interface for you named ath1
    run airodump-ng ath1
    and for kismet modify it and put source according to your card.
    read here to learn configuring kismet
    http://www.kismetwireless.net/documentation.shtml
    source should look like this
    source=madwifing_ag,ath0,ath0
    running kismet will destroy VAP and will create a interface by name kis0.

    Have you tried updating the madwifi drivers? Does the card actually work in any other mode (e.g. managed) and able to connect to your access point?

    Not sure why airodump isn't working.

    I'd try adding a difference source to kismet.conf

    source=madwifi_g,wifi0,madwifi
