Hi everyone,

I just purchased an NC10, it has the Atheros AR5007EG WiFi card built in.

When I ran non-persistent BT(3 or 4, unsure now) installation off a bootable pen drive, Kismet worked straight away.

Then I totally reformatted the NC10's harddrive and reinstalled XP and Ubuntu to dual boot.

Now I have created another bootable pen drive installation of BT4 (this time persistent), but am experiencing some problems I was hoping for some help with.

When I first boot into BT4 off the pendrive I enter the following:

/etc/init.d/networking start
Which results in:

wifi0: unknown hardware address type 801
wifi0: unknown hardware address type 801
Listening on LPF/eth0/00:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
Sending on LPF/eth0/00:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX

DHCPDISCOVER on eth0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 5
No DHCPOFFERS received.
No working leases in persistent database - sleeping.
I then enter:

/etc/init.d/NetworkManager start
which seems to run fine.

Then I enter:

startx
and the green globe appears on the desktop

I click on the icon, select 'New connection" > "ath0"

but my router's SSID fails to show, the router is working fine, SSID is set to show, and BT is showing my neighbours AP's, but not mine. I can use my AP fine in Windows.

Can anyone think of a solution. Like I say, before the reformat Kismet detected packets from the AP's near my home, but I never tried to access my own router at this time nor the internet, but now when I try run Kismet I get the following:

Lauching 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.
So it was working, but now is not, hope someone can help me.

Thanks very much, it's appreciated.
