    Hello (My english is no the best ;p )
    I have a problem. My Dell Studio 1537 is not recognize my wireless card. Maybe someone help me ? (My chipset is Broadcom 4315 (I use the command 'lspci -n| grep 14e4') and my wireless card is Dell wireless card 1397).

    I found this site:

    1 I downloaded linux sta.

    Follow this one until the end, doesn't matter if you get some ERROR.

    Thanks kazalku !!! My wireless card was recognized. Whether you know how to configure my card with Kismet ? Where can I write configure (kismet.conf) and what can I do to run my wirelles in monitore mode ?

    # source=bcm43xx,eth1,kismet -> this is good ?
