    Default Kismet newcore

    Hi I just got my BT4 final VMware image and in trying to use kismet.

    In old kismet I had to change settings lie this For Kismet, edit your Kismet.conf to "source=rt8180,wlan0,ALFA"
    http://backtrack.offensive-security....works_AWUS036H

    How should I do it now. Iv been trying to find that file and Iv been reading README file to solve this, but I havent made it yet.

    so please help me to get my ALFA networks AWUS036H 1000mw to work in kismet newcore.

    If you open the config file and read where it says something like the wolrd `source' (use the search function provided in your editor if you can't see it yourself). There is a very very good example of how to add a new line in.

    1)Go to this path
    /usr/etc
    2)Edit kismet.conf whit kate
    3)Find the line
    #ncsource=wlan0:name=intel,hop=false,channel=11
    4)delete the simbol # and put somthing like
    ncsource=wlan0:name=Atheros, type=ath5k
    Obs.- In my case i have a driver ath5k chipset atheros
    5)Save changues
    Obs.- Actually the command kismet -c driver,interface, name does not work with the startup of kismet.

    Hope it works for you
