    Talking More accurate airodump or kismet?

    Hey everyone

    Just wondering which power numbers and all other info are more accurate on airodump or kismet?

    I've been using both until now but am having trouble deciding which to use as my discovery tool and the accuracy.

    What does everyone do here:

    Use Kismet to find specific targets and then go into airodump or vice versa?

    Thx

    well rendering of pwr level depends on ur driver accuracy to do it...many driver without a patch show -1 or a wrong pwr....

    i prefer kismet for the possibility of combining it with gps...for discovery
    i prefer airodump for lisibility.....

    I'm using the madwifi driver for the netgear WG311T chipset . Once I updated the drivers thankfully those -1's went away.

    airodump for visibilty, is that a spelling mistake or a term I don't know.

    Thx

    sorry my english....im french...

    i want to say that with airodump you can see informations easily .... kismet is a bit confusing me.... kismet UI is not easy to use and not easy to read....but more complete than airodump....

    Oh no prob you meant visibility then. I'm finding the same thing out over all my tests. I'll keep comparing in the future and post back with any results.
