anyone managed to get the built in wireless in monitor mode for kismet or wellenreiter. It is driving me crazy
skoorb
anyone ??

I've spent hours trying to get Kismet 2.8.1 running. It's installed, server runs -- seems like it just doesn't see the card. No luck with Discoverer and Wellenreiter either. Wavelanmon partially works. It displays MAC, signal info, but no SSID (on associated APs). There has got to be a common configuration problem. Where are the smart Linux guys?

Which driver are you using? (see dmesg)
Probably Sharp still using wlan-ng without wireless extensions on the 6000. No luck then with anything requiring the linux standard API for wireless lan to be present.

Mickey,
iwconfig says "no wireless extensions."
I'm trying to figure how to send you the dmesg output.

Thanks,

Guys,

I get the same results as Skoorb when the SL-6000 is associated. Kismet_monitor seems to turn on the radio, kismet_hopper seems to scan, but kismet will not start with monitor or hopper running. With the SL-6000 associated with my AP, kismet will start, but show nothing. I haven't found a single wireless app that will work on the 6000.

Thanks Mickeyl,

I have orinoco_cs.c 0.12 I downloaded orinoco_cs.c 0.14Alpha Is it possible to update this? (I obviously know very little about Linux)

0.14alpha is too old. you need to build it from CVS HEAD, because orinoco only recently implemented support for usb chips.
