    open up the conf file from /usr/local/etc/kismet.conf, find "# enablesources=prismsource,ciscosource" and paste in this under it: source=bcm43xx,eth1,eth1

    although kismet works for me, bcm43xx is still pretty buggy and id recommend a different card. kismet is pretty much the only thing that works for me.

    yup. i usually just use my wusb54g adapter though, it seems more stable and gives me less problems.

    I have the same card:

    kismet works fine when you use the kismet.conf change mentioned earlier.

    before using aircrack/dump suite, remember to put the card in monitor mode

    iwconfig eth1 mode Monitor channel <channel # you are interested in>

    and also, for aireplay-ng, remember to use -x 10

    since this internal wifi card seems to only handle about 10 packets per second for injection

    I have the Broadcom as one of my cards. Airodump-ng works fine with it. The only issue is that the power is shown as 0 or -1, otherwise it works. Note that on my system the card is eth0, not eth1. May be the same by you. I have found that I can inject at 14 packets per second with aireplay-ng, and it went fine. Don't know if all cards will be the same. Good luck.
