    find the line called "sources"
    edit with your card and uncomment it....

    restart kismet

    it's because kismet need to know your card....
    I did this and got a message stating permission denied, what does this mean?

    Thanks.

    You must type "nano" command.
    It should look like:

    Code:
    nano /etc/kismet/kismet.conf
    And then edit file, when you are done, press Ctrl an X, an then Yes, enter, and start kismet again.

    i had the same problem with this and dident even need to ask on here!!
    reinstalling my drivers and doing :
    rmmod rt61
    airmon-ng start wlan0
    start-kismet-ng
    worked for me!

    I can't find a step-by-step guide for wep cracking with BackTrack2. Many guides claim to be step-by-step, but leave out crucial steps such as enabling your card in Kismet. How, exactly, is this done? How do I know what to put in the sources line?

    For example, I'm looking for something like this.

    1. Run iwconfig and write down the name of your network interface.
    2. Run blahblah and write down the name of your sourcetype.
    3. Run blahblah2 and write down the name of your _name.
    4. Run blahblah3 and write down the name of your initialchannel.
    5. vi /etc/kismet/kismet.conf
    6. Find the "sources" line, edit it with "sourcetype,interface,name[,initialchannel]" and uncomment it.
    7. Run kismet.
    8. etc.

    Or something like that. What exactly do I put in the "sources" line of kismet.conf, and how do I figure out the exact phrases to use for my machine?
