I'm trying to run kismet from BT3 but I get the following error:
My card is recognized (wlan0) and even connected to a wireless network. Is that bug in BT3, or is it another Intel 3945 card issue.Code:bt ~ # start-kismet-ng wlan0 Unknown Unknown (MONITOR MODE NOT SUPPORTED) Sorry i could not identify any wlan interfaced i will exit now
P.S: Why can't I post anywhere else on the forums?
Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69
I will try do this, but this might not be the best solution, since I'm using a liveCD, and I would to keep using a liveCD.
Well that didn't work, I get too many errors. It asked me to install ieee80211, so I tried and got more errors. Are those kind of installations are supported using a liveCD?
You have to load the ipwraw driver to change to monitor mode.
After loading the ipwraw drivers run the command iwconfig to see if it uses wifi# or eth#, then configure the sources in the kismet.conf file accordingly.
P.S. You have to wait three days before getting full member status... then you'll be able to post elsewhere on the forum

Ok, I've tried to load the IP Raw driver, provided in the menu... But it's incorrect.
So after a short lookup I've found this fix in backtrack wiki:
I executed the fix.Incorrect menu items
Backtrack>Radio Network Analysis>80211>Misc
* Load IPW 3945/4965
Command: modprobe ipwraw && rmmod ipwraw & load && cd /root;sudo -s
* Load IPWRAW
Command: unload && modprobe ipwraw && cd /root;sudo -s

Then I execute iwconfig, but this time my wlan0 interface was gone, and all was left is wifi0, so I set the source parameter in /usr/local/etc/kismet.conf to wifi0. But when I run kismet, it only gives me the following message:
Notice that now it no longer indicates any interface (wlan0).Code:bt ~ # start-kismet-ng Sorry i could not identify any wlan interfaced i will exit now
What should I do now?
I've got the same issue when trying to start Kismet with start-kismet-ng.
I've even manually changed the /usr/local/etc/kismet.conf, made sure the card is in monitor mode (with airmon-ng) but then I get another error when starting with ./kismet:
FATAL: Specifying a uid-0 user for the priv drop is pointless.
What you suggest .Lonewolf is what I've tried. first loading ipwraw, then using airmon-ng to put into monitor mode and start-kismet-ng. The result was the cannot find wireless interface error.
Next added manually a SOURCE in the /usr/local/etc/kimset.conf.
then again but started kismet by using "kismet" instead of start-kimset-ng: then the suid error appears...
