Everytime I try to run airodump I get this error:
ioctl(SIOCSIWMODE) failed: Invalid argument
Yes I believe I am. When you load up Kismet it automatically puts it into monitor mode right? I have a Gigabyte GN-W10TGT with Atheros 5006x chipset.
Kismet uses your card that should already be in monitor mode. If not i believe it creates its own VAP kis1? Not too sure
//if someone can confirms this or clarify any mistakes.
If you have an atheros based chipset you should try
airmon-ng stop ath0
airmon-ng start wifi0
you NEED to do it before..................
airodump don't put your card monitoring before launching himself..........

If I load up Kismet first then it should put it in monitor mode right? This is the steps I am taking.
1. Open Kismet
2. Then I type wlanconfig ath0 create wlandev wifi0 wlanmode monitor
3. I go into console and type airodump-ng ath0 --ivs -w WEP -c 6 and thats when I get the error I mentioned. I tryed the same with wifi0 as the adapater but still gives me the same problem.
You should read more on the pages of madwifi-ng drivers
first try not to run Kismet before
#wlanconfig ath0 destroy
and if it is ath1..2
#wlanconfig ath1 destroy
then use your commands
#wlanconfig ath0 create . . .. monitor
airodump-ng should work
Kismet makes interfaces kis1 kis2 and so on
before airodump you should quit kismet
#iwconfig kis1 down
then do the same as above to start airodump-ng
to put atheros in monitor mode you can run
airmon-ng wifi0 start
that creates new athX interface in monitor mode ( ath0 or ath1.. )
try this instead:
Select wifi0, then close it down. Now try airodump.Code:start-kismet-ng
