    Default Kismet not working

    Hi all

    wondering if anyone can help me. when i try to start kismet i am getting this error messege:

    Launching kismet_server: //usr/bin/kismet_server
    Suid priv-dropping disabled. This may not be secure.
    No specific sources given to be enabled, all will be enabled.
    Non-RFMon VAPs will be destroyed on multi-vap interfaces (ie, madwifi-ng)
    Enabling channel hopping.
    Enabling channel splitting.
    NOTICE: Disabling channel hopping, no enabled sources are able to change channel.
    Source 0 (intel): Enabling monitor mode for iwl3945 source interface wlan0 channel 6...
    FATAL: GetIFFlags: interface wlan0: No such device
    Done.


    i dont know why it is looking for wlan0 as i have ath0. Could someone please tell me how to get kismet to work.

    Thanks in advance

    Just like the other 50 threads with this question, edit the kismet.conf .
    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
