I am having difficulty putting my wireless interface into promiscuous mode. ifconfig says that it is, but I cannot gather packets not to/from the z. I compiled my own libpcap but this didn't work so I reverted to an ipk that I seem to recall working (but am now doubting my memory).

I have tried with ethereal, driftnet, tcpdump, my own code using libpcap - nothing. Kismet functions correctly but this isn't quite the same thing.

I'm not sure if the problem is my kernel, libpcap, wifi card or something else.

My setup is:
pdaXrom 1.1.0beta1 "Katherin"
Linksys WCF12 802.11b
libpcap 0.9.8-devel from capn_fish

Any suggestions appreciated. THanks.


Just like to say I love the z. my only real unix box at this point ...
